I do not want to make a mashed potato casserole, nor do I have a crockpot. How can I make a lot of mashed potatoes and keep them warm?

I'd go for the double boiler method, even if you have to improvise one given your larger amount of potatoes. Be sure you have a lid of some kind and your mashed potatoes should stay moist.

If you aren't using your microwave, they're usually a small air space with good insulation; a big pot of potatoes would stay warm in there for quite a while.

I agree - use a double boiler to keep warm!

I also suggest these mashed potatoes as another option, which can be made-ahead and reheated whenever. https://food52.com/recipes/38993-silver-palate-s-thanksgiving-potatoes

If you don't want to reheat them in a casserole dish in the oven, you could keep them warm in a pan set over simmering water as Ina Garten recommends: https://food52.com/blog/11742-ina-garten-s-make-ahead-thanksgiving-advice
