Guys - thanks for the info on starters.  Mr. Malty seems to cover everything I would ever want to know on the subject. 

PS.  - Cracked my first all grain beer yesterday.  Needs to sit for a little longer, but all in all I think it is great. The extract brews I had made were not anything I wanted to share with friends, but the AG brew is far superior.  Already have an IPA in the fermenter and I'm looking for my next AG beer!
Thanks again for all the advice. 
Cheers.

Fair enough euge, I mash my Irish stout at 150F.

McQuaker's Oatmeal Stout in Brewing Classic Styles lists 154 as the mash temp... I just made this beer and wondered if that was too high, but it's a tested recipe so I stayed with it. 158 does sound awfully high for the OP's brew.
