IIRC, Jeff has modiifed that schedule significantly since the article was written.  I'd do 30 min. at 144 and 30 min. at 158.  hopfenmalz has mentioned that Jeff often uses polenta mashed in a pressure cooker.  Here's a more recent article by Jeff Renner, updating his procedure....

Thanks for posting this link Denny! 

I'll brew both.....

Jeff uses Mt. Hood and Cluster these days. The cereal mash is done in a pressure cooker, there was a Zymurgy article on that technique. RO water and a tsp of CaCl2. WLP 833 yeast.

Bob Barrett and I brewed a batch with Jeff last year for the BJCP reception at the Philly NHC. I can post the recipe later, but I am brewing my CAP right now, and am in the boil stage.
