Or...you can make a smaller batch that fits. I know.....it's not nearly as much fun as having a full 5 gallon batch of 12%!

A 1.1:1 (or if you want to make is 12.12:12!) grist ratio isn't too bad. I did a Turbid mash the other weekend. It started out with a 0.3qt/lb mash. That was weird. It was like my granola had a teaspoon of milk in it.

1.1:1 isn't that thick. I mash all my English ales at 1:1, or a bit lower if I know I'll need to make an infusion to keep the temp up over 150 very soon. I hope your wee heavy goes well--I'm brewing the 12-12-12 in about 2 weeks.

I am curious about what numbers you are plugging in for efficiency, and what will be your total water-to-grist ratio for the entire boil volume, versus what you normally use.
