10 lbs is hardly a mini-mash...I'd just relax, have a brew, and steep them grains.

Depends on the malt. Some pale malts are very low like 60dp while there is one out there that around 160dp.

If I were you I'd just do an AG of this. Just take your kettle, mash in it. Then use a peice of copper with slots cut in it from a hack saw, jigsaw or dremel tool, think copper racking cane with a 'foot' with slots at the bottom, and siphon the wort out of the kettle/mashtun.

Shouldn't be too difficult.
I may not be an expert, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express........ 6 months ago.
