Honestly, it might be better to tune your system in on a simpler beer. Are you crushing the grain yourself? Batch sparging? I was all over the place on efficiency until I got a grain mill. Now I am 75-76% every time. I might drop a couple points on higher gravity beers like this one. It's hard to guess what your efficiency would be off the bat.

Therein lies the fun -- finding your efficiency. I can tell you that if you have a good crush on your grains, that your setup will yield between 70-80% efficiency in most cases. But you just have to find out on your own.

You mentioned your setup, but you didn't mention any sort of screen for your bulkhead/valve, etc. Do you even have your mash tun converted with a ball valve and screen or false bottom? If not, you MUST do this. Otherwise, you're gonna have a really ****ty time.

Just ordered grains for a slightly different variation on this grain bill. Can't wait to brew it!

Brewing this stout today. I'm using wyeast 1056 and using more nugget to bring the IBUs up to about 54. Looking forward to this big brew, it's my 4th all grain cook.

If I can't find cacao nibs, how much cacao powder should I substitute for? Should I add this any differently? I've never used cacao in brewing before. Thanks.

I just used a combination of unsweetened and bittersweet chocolate. Worked great.
