Partial mash.

1 lbs 60 deg Crystal,1 lbs DWC Carapils,.25 lbs Chocolate malts
2lbs Munich Malt

So I let it ride as advised by all of you beer gurus.

FG 1.020
From my calc. thats about 7.3 abv. (but I could be wrong)

Did I do good !? Skipped secondary. Kegged and forced carbed.
Two days later. This beer will knock your socks off.
Thanks for all the great advice. I'll wait another week and share with only the closest of my buds.
Your all invited also.
Thanks again !

Four weeks and a day.
I spent 18 months in Germany when I was in the military. (that's how I got spoiled on GOOD beer)
I can not believe how well this batch turned out. Just a 6 oz. glass has a good kick to it. And I'm not a light weight.
