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.
