I ended up making about 5 3/4 gallons, kegging a little under 5 gals and bottling the rest. Had a bottle after 3 weeks and it was very good. So good, in fact, that I'm sure that once I tap the keg, I'm sure my diet will be out the window. Hence the name Diet Killer.
If you are a Guinness fan, try this beer. It is pretty close.
Mashed at 150* for 75 min. No mash out. Batch sparge. I lost a degree or two during the mash.

"Filled with mingled cream and amber I will drain that glass again. Such hilarious visions clamber through the chambers of my brain--Quaintest thoughts--queerest fancies come to life and fade away; Who cares how time advances? I am drinking ale today"-Edgar Alan Poe
