Default Crazy Beer Time

I wanted to get everyone's opinion on my next idea for an extreme beer. I have been reading about the 120 min IPA clones and utopia clones and wanted to try my hand at this. I wrote the batch as a 4 gallon batch, but since I am thinking about pitching it on 1 gallon of another beer (total volume 5 gallons), I assumed a lower mashing efficiency to try and compensate. I wasn't sure how to handle that in beersmith. I can add BeerSmith file if needed.

Notes

Pour 1 gallon of wort into 1 gallon of previously brewed amber beer. Take the remaining wort and put into 12 sanitized quart jars. When fermentation slows, put 1 quart of wort into a bowl and whisk to add oxygen. Next add to fermenter and wait for fermentation to slow again. Repeat until fermentation stops or jars run out.

I'm assuming you've seen this article?
http://www.byo.com/stories/technique...all-grain-beer
Basically the same procedure.

I doubt that European Ale yeast is going to make it. You're going to want something that will tolerate higher alcohol and be able to attenuate more.
The 10 oz of Warrior is a waste. Anything over 100-120 IBU isn't going to do anything.

I forgot to list it, but I was going to eventually switch to WLP099, though I haven't decided when to add it. Probably after the first 2 gallons are done i think would be best.

As long as long as you stick to the recommended 2 12 oz beers a day you will be all set.
