Love the coleman xtreme. The 70qt is a big tun... for 5 gallon batches, I'm not sure I would recommend it. For big beers, fine... but 8lbs of malt for a pale ale or pils would get lost in there!

I was thinking 10% Munich is appropriate. Too much in a light beer will darken the color. Maybe you could get away with 15-20%, I have not run the numbers through software. Depends on how dark you want. If color doesn't really matter, then yeah, use 20-30% with great effect.
BTW I did get a chance to try some ST barleywine lately... it was ok but not on the top of my list of barleywines
or you can just start hanging your hop bags with teflon tape through the lid gasket to prevent them from getting low enough to block the dip tube.Yeah, but that wouldn't help if the bag opened up, which seems to be what happened here.
