Borg's suggestion will get you to 8.5 % ABV. A pound of dextrose in 5 gallons adds 0.009 points and about 1.2 % ABV (since if ferments 100%)
Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"

Just brew the DFH 90. I know there are some recipes floating around, but I don't have any bookmarked.

Borg, how are you able to convert that AG recipe to this partial mash? Is there a documented way on how to do this or is this an educated guess? This would help me a lot since I'm not always able to find a partial mash version of a recipe and I end up annoying people around here to no end trying to convert the recipe!
