If we get good attenuation we will be around 10% that is right smack dab in the middle for style.

Cheers! Good day brewing with a great bunch of brewers.
By my calculations, the combined OG, adjusted for the sample temperature is ~1.092.

I thought you were going to suggest hot scotchies...

Yeah I am aware of the issue with a sulfur stick and residual booze :) That is why I think we should treat it with a heavy dose of bourbon and roll it all around in there for a little while. It also will help to keep the inside wet. That is important because if it gets dry the staves will shrink and it will leak.

As far as prep work goes, I might be available Friday evening for an hour or two if I can manage to get my mash tun built by then. Check with Pete. I don't know how far he has gotten yet but there is grain to be portioned and crushed. Hops to be portioned. Equipment set up...
We're fermenting in two 55 gallon drums in the basement. The plan for managing fermentation temperatures is to strap ice packs to them. If anyone has a better actionable solution, now is the time to get that done.Justin had an idea to put them near a basement window, build a tent of some sort around them, and blow in cool outside air with a fan on a temp controller...
On the Jack barrel, I don't know much, but I do know that you need to be careful burning sulfur sticks around those alcohol fumes. You can get blowed up! Like for real, man!

This dosent have to happen before hand, but
... We need to prep the barrel. I am thinking we add a gallon of bourbon to it and mix it all around, then drain. Or we need to burn a sulfer stick or add a solution to clean it etc... dont want to sour 53 gallons of RIS. Also might have to swell the barrel too.

We did trim the 2row and munich a bit like you said to make things logistically a bit simpler. 24# of grain total. Pete was going to have the grist portioned in 5 gallon batches.
I don't think it will matter much if the different batches end up with slightly different gravities. They will become one beer in the end. As long as we're in the imperial stout range(1.075-1.115) I'll be content with it.
I can take the spent grain for mulch. The second runnings would make a nice small stout if anyone were so inclined.

My 2-cents...

I ran Mike's RIS through BeerSmith. I can get a scaled down 4-gallon recipe to fit in my 10-gallon mash tun, or the recipe as is will fit if I reduce the water down to 1.1qt/lb or it will fit by pulling the grain out the Joe suggested.

I would suggest pulling out the 1.5# of 2-row and 1# of Munich from the mash (BeerSmith calculates 9.68 gallons of volume needed) and then bumping up the gravity with DME or LME in the last 10-minutes of the BOIL to the desired OG. This will also help to correct the differences in efficiencies I'm sure we will run into.

FYI... We also should have use of two 30-gallon mash tuns for the day. I am also working on a temperature control system for the two 50 gallon fermentors.

OK, let's geek out!
I generally assume: The volume in the tun, occupied by the grist is around 1/10 gallon/ pound of dry grains. 1/10 gallon will be lost to absorption by the grist.
So for mash and sparge with 24# of grain, at a rate of 1.25 quarts/#, 30 quarts of strike water should occupy 40 quarts of tun space and yield 20 quarts of wort.
For a 5.5 gallon no sparge,@ 1.66 quarts/#, 40 quarts of strike water will occupy 50 quarts of tun space and should yield 30 quarts of 1.075 wort, 6 gallons of 1.090 after boiloff(pre trub loss).

I believe my mash tun is a 50 qt ... Doing a 10 gallon batch through that might be tough. Unless I just mash twice, boil once. like mash two separate 5 gallon grain bill twice into my kettle then just proceed as normal? or attempt one BIAB and then another in the mash tun? That way we can save time ... i dunno :P

I will bring my 2 mash tuns.

As far as scaling down a few changes are probably not going to make a big enough difference. We could steep dark grains to save space.. but not sure how much that would change anything...

We may just have to reuse mash tuns. Might not be a huge issue if we are ready for it.
