Looks like it will be tasty. I think some of the more experienced brewers may tell you to cut back on the flaked barley. Should be good by St. Patty's day. It looks like a good recipe, I'd drink it!

If I were you I'd get brewing on it though, only a few days more than a month til you wanna tap that keg, and you want it conditioned enough that it has maximum deliciousness

Well since I will hopefully have my 4 way regulated manifold installed into the keezer by that time I plan on using this chart and setting it to around 10 PSI. Stouts should only have 1.7 - 2.3 based on the charts recommendation. I could bump it up to 12 and should still be fine if I don't get the keezer done in time. I don't force carb, I give it a natural 2 weeks normally, but time may be an issue to get it done by Patty's day, so some shaking may occur.

Don't shake it. Try the method I use. Rack to keg and put in kegerator, put it on 30 PSI and bleed the keg of any oxygen. Let it sit for 2 1/2 - 3 days on 30 PSI and then switch over to normal serving pressure and drink. No shaking at all and has never done me wrong. Good luck and looks like a tasty recipe.

Thanks Coldies, I will probably go that route if time does become an issue. I try to avoide it based on the LONG natural carbonation thread on here and the detailed graph that's provided about natural carbonation vs 30psi method, but ya gotta do what ya gotta do to get your drink on.
