Silk Stout

This is an old favorite of mine, a clean simple dry stout similar to Guinness.  This will be served on Nitro Gas on my Keggor.  I'm looking to mash a little high to keep some of the dextrins and  simple starches in the final product.  It has been about 3 years since I brewed this recipe and I hope some of my acquired brewing skill will reflect in the final product.
