RM, That's exactly the way I would do it.

Haven't brewed it yet, as it turned out I have to work all weekend, on the plus side that gives me money for a bigger pot

My thoughts/options
1.Split my grains in half and mash in two separate pots then combine the wort in my 7-1/2 gallon pot for the boil.
2. mash with less water in my 7-1/2 gallon then sparge (similar to the partial mash method) either in a seperate pot then combine or in the same pot.
I just can't afford a bigger pot right now and I would like to get this cream stout in the fermenter soon so I can have it ready for Christmas.
Thoughts?

Do Both.

I did stove top brewing in 2 pots before getting a kettle and burner.

I also do sparge, put some hot water on a pot, put the grain bag in that after the mash, and soak and stir it up a bit. Drain and squeeze and you will get additional sugar. The larger the grain bill, the more sugar recovered.
