I have a 70qt igloo cube (seems smaller than 70, but that's what it says) and I want to brew a chimay grand reserve clone. My grain bill is just under 38lb of grain. Is this all going to fit in 1 mash? I'd hate to fill with strike water only to realize that I am full after adding only 1/3 the grain.

I have a 60 qt Ice Cube and have successfully accomplished mashes with nearly 40 lbs of grain. Yours should be just fine.
Yuri - I also built my MLT using a 60qt Ice Cube so I'm very happy I choose well (OK, good guess), but I have to say - Can you post a video of that if you do it again. This is not just voyeurism, I really want to do a chimay clone myself, once I get some resemblance of consistency in my effectiveness.
