I was working on coming up with this year's holiday brew and got to thinking - what is the most grain and what grist ratio have you used for a 20 gallon mash tun?

Mine is the RIS that Kal posted on here - 38.65 lbs of grain, 1.25 qt/lb.

The new holiday brew is slated for 48 lbs of grain, 1.25 qt/lb. I might have to dial that back and add some DME.

Another option to consider is sugar in the boil. All the big IIPAs and imperial stouts/porters I have made used sugar to bump the alcohol while maintaining fermentability.
