I ended up mashing 3lbs of grains in two gallons of water followed by a 20 minute boil and adding that to the carboy (after dumping two gallons of water). I think the PH must of been off and the yeast died since it's been a week and I have zero activity and the hydrometer hasn't dropped a single point. The taste is beyond repair and i'm dumping this one. I don't think it's feasible to get a small beer on a 5-gallon scale unless the big beer is north of 1.100, there's just not enough sugars left and you end up over-sparging releasing acrid tannin's. On a good note, I will now be able to tell you if you an overabundance of tannin's in your beer.
