0.75 lb Cara-Pils/Dextrine (2.0 SRM)
0.50 lb Caramel/Crystal Malt - 10L (10.0 SRM)
0.50 lb Vienna Malt (3.5 SRM)
0.25 oz Centennial [9.50%] (55 min)
0.25 oz Centennial [9.50%] (35 min)
0.25 oz Cascade [7.80%] (20 min)
0.25 oz Cascade [7.80%] (5 min)

I can still use some of that for a partial mash, right? Just replace the Pale Malt with an extract?

yes, but the boil is the problematic part.. Id just mash the whole thing.. youre going to have to mash anyway if you are doing a partial mash.. a full mash would actually be easier.. and cheaper (no DME to fuss with...and you already have all the grain).

9.75 # grain will easily fit in that pot for a mash, then just boil what you can, topping off with cold water (then maybe an ice bath will be adequate to cool to pitching temp--- like with deathbrewers method.

thats what I would do anyway. GO FOR IT!!
