I would use a large grain bag (24"x24") as there is a lot of grain to mash.
Mash normally for 60 minutes then sparge normally. Collect 6 gallons to 6.25 Gallons of wort for boil. Boil for 90 minutes total. Bittering hops for 60 min., flavor and aroma hops separately during the last minute of the boil. Chill to 65ish F. Take OG. Crudely filter (whirlpool) from your boil into your primary after pitching your 2 packs of 1007 (Hops in the primary is good for this beer). Ferment for 2 weeks@ 65ish F. Take FG. Calculate dextrose amount based on yield in gallons, I used 3.5 oz. Filter beer through fine strainer or pantyhose (or both) from your primary into your bottling vessel. Bottle. Leave for another 2 weeks with minimum aggravation (you want the yeast to settle and become dense). Chill 24hrs prior to drinking. Pour into glass avoiding the yeast. Enjoy and share.

Beer was well received by multiple tasters of both genders. The beer was biscuity, smooth, bright and full bodied with heavy mouth feel. Very strong abv lent to a warming feeling after swallowing. I will most definitely be brewing this one again.
