Grain Bill

Even at around 1.1 quarts per pound of grain, you would end up at around 12 gallons of mash with a 35lbs grain bill. I think the max you can do in a 10 gallon cooler would be closer to 28lbs. Good luck.

Well you can always brew a 5 gallon batch of the stuff and have enough room in your 10 gallon to do it with!

Extract

You could also add some extract to the boil to make up for the grain that you couldn't add to the Mash.
