I've never tested it. Lol. I base my brewing off of feel look and tastes. I'm not professional so therefore I tweak my beers with each batch until I find something I like. I've had great results brewing with out taking readings. Guess its a little old school brewing!!

Exploded in fermentation. Had to use blow off everytime for at least two days! This beer has excellent roasty and chocolate flavored!

Check into things like Joe's Quick Grape Mead and some of Joe Mattioli's other "quick" and "no-age" recipes on gotmead.com. He says the recipes can be drinkable in 3-4 weeks. YMMV, but I did his no-age mead and it was pretty tasty in about 5 weeks. Of course, it got much better after a couple months, but it was drinkable pretty fast.

If you like Wheat beer like Hefeweizens, many can be fermented and into bottles/keg within 10-12 days.

Alright. I hit the brew store today and picked up everything. I decided to go with a Breiss "Special Dark" LME so that should be interesting. The trouble is, I ran into another delema for those interested. Lack of expected primary. I want to start my beer since the barley is all milled and stuff if anyone wants to jump over to that thread and help out!

For simplicity sake, since its my first go and all, I went with Yooper's recommendation (slightly modified):
5 #s Breiss "Special Dark" LME
2 #s flaked barley
1 # black roasted barley
2oz Kent goldings
S05 yeast

I am definitely keeping the other excellent recommendations though including your obsidian. If this is a success, that will probably be my next brew.
