6.00 lb Pale Malt (2 Row) US (2.0 SRM) Grain 64.86 %
1.00 lb Barley, Flaked (1.7 SRM) Grain 10.81 %
1.00 lb Cara-Pils/Dextrine (2.0 SRM) Grain 10.81 %

I've heard nothing but good about this one.

Alright. Here's my issue finding one: the characteristic smooth, creamy taste you get in a good dry stout is the result of using a portion of unmalted, flaked barley, which is no good to steep because it needs to be converted by enzymes from malted barley. Can you do PM?

Here's my idea for you.

Steeping grains:
0.5lb 6-row
1.0lb flaked barley
0.5lb chocolate malt
0.5lb roasted barley

I guess that's a lot to steep. You want to steep it at 150 for at least half an hour, because the enzymes from the 6-row will actually be converting your flaked barley. Don't let the temperature get too high during this.

Extract:
5.5lb Light LME
0.5lb Malto-dextrine

Hops:
1oz EKG 5.5% @60minutes

This will give you an OG ranging from 1.048 - 1.052 depending on how well the steeping goes. That'll give you 4.5-5% ABV, and it'll be black and smooth and creamy. About 27IBU.

Before you follow my advice, let's wait for someone with extract brewing chops to tell me whether or not my idea to get enzymatic conversion in the mash is totally crazy.

Brewer's Best Dry Irish Stout is a great beer (better than guiness IMO). It could use some extra 2-row cause it's pretty low ABV. So Adding a pound of 2-row or 6-row to the specialty grains plus maybe some oats or flaked barley and mashing that would probably make for a fantastic stout.

You can get close but flaked barley does not convert unless mashed.

If you steep flaked barley around 150 (and not much higher!) for long enough with enough enzymes (think six-row), it's a mash of sorts. You're not going to get good efficiency, but you'll get something out of that flaked barley, and you'll get your sugars from your malt extract.

I'm nearly certain I've read here people who have successfully done this.
