    I am hoping someone might have a good recipe to use with a 12 qt mixer.

    there are some good recipes at PMQ home under recipe bank for doughs
    given in Baker's % so any size you need,
    about the most you could go in a 12 qt. planetary mixer is about 10 pounds of flour, plus the other ingredients

    try 3 qts water
    3 oz compressed yeast
    1/2 cup salt
    10.5 lbs hi gluten

    put ingredients in mixer beat slow for 5-10 minutes

    turn speed up and mix an additional 5-10
    this is half of my recipe and adjustments may be needed to obtain desired
    stiffness. I have a firm but not hard dough
    This will yield about 18 large pizzas

    10 lbs of flour will burn that mixer up.

    Please refer to the RECIPE BANK and take a look at the formula that I have posted in there for a New York style pizza dough. If you are planning to use a deck oven do not use any sugar in the dough formula. If you are using any other type of oven you may need yto include 2% sugar in the dough formula.
    For a 12-quart capacity mixer you should use only 2.5 pounds of total flour in the dough. This is equal to 40-ounces. So you will need to use a calculator to figure the ingredient amounts as follows:
    40 (flour weight in ounces) X ingredient percent then press the "%" key and read the weight of ingredient in the display window.

    2.5 pounds flour in 12 quart mixer

    2.5 pounds is probably about right for the longevity of the mixer.
    Going to the max, I have been putting 8 pounds of flour in a Berkel(made by Thunderbird) mixer that is 10 qts. It's a strain on the mixer and I am sure the continued practice will affect the mixer.

    I am getting a "Fleetwood" barrel mixer, 55 pound maximum, 13 pound minimum flour capacity. Should be delivered tomorrow. I could not find much information on it, pro or con, so I bought one to see for myself.
    The main appeal to me is that it weighs 192 pounds and weight is a consideration on the trailer.
    Will let you know how it goes, if interested.

    PS Tom, how come you have been signed in as "Guest" lately ?
