Thanks for your replies. Your remarks sparked a lot of reading and development of my understanding of diastatic power. I ended up getting the 3# of 2-row. O.G. was .007 short of projected, but still huge (1.083). There was so much grain that it was hard to handle--must make plunge into all-grain asap.

Has anyone made the mini-mash adaptation of the Red Velvet (10B American Amber Ale) from the AHA recipe Wiki? The mini-mash notes below the all-grain recipe call for subbing 8# LME for 11# of 2-row, but the all grain recipe calls for 14# of 2-row. It isn't clear whether one should include an additional 3# of 2-row in steeping grain bill--in which case there would be 9+ lbs of steeping grains, which seems like a whale of a lot for a 6 gal batch. I'm interested in making this one, but am unsure of the specs. Thanks.
