I've never made stouts but when I'm drafting a recipe I head to Northern Brewer and read through their recipes. I buy my ingredients from them too so it's not like I'm stealing.

I think it's horrible. Ship the entire batch to me immediately and I'll dispose of it for you. For a nominal fee of course.

Seriously, welcome to the hobby and congrats on your first brew.

They only need the brush treatment the first time. After that, rinse them as soon as they're empty and you only need to sanitize each time. Get the Vinator, it takes under 10 minutes to do all your...

As a precaution I think I'd clean the bottles thoroughly before reusing too. That means treating them as if they were new to the inventory so they get an oxyclean soak and all that.

My house ale use 6#DME and 1#sugar. With 1/2# steeping grains and 2oz. hops it suits me perfectly. With what you have maybe using all 9# and some Belgian yeast would be worth a try.
