20% roasted malt is WAY too much. It will probably be pretty acrid and astringent. Cut those in half and you're getting closer and you could try adding the roast for a quick steep so you don't get as much harshness.

Partial mash?

The meadowfoam flavor is great, but really delicate. I don't know that the flavor would stand up to a stout.

Yea it's a partial mash. I just dont have the set up yet, to go All Grain. After looking at the roast levels, I totally see what you are saying. I'm gonna cut the weight and steep it. As for the meadow foam, does anyone know a good or better way to bump up the marshmallowy "vanilla" flavor?

Thanks again guys
Cheers

Steve Altimari at Highwater Brewing makes a pretty great S'mores stout callled Campfire stout.. You might be able to ask him for tips. He's pretty available on twitter/facebook.
