What did you think of this?  My 60 came out a wee bit watery.  

I'm thinking a bit more Carafoam next batch.

It had less body than I wanted, but I'm going to counter this next time with a thicker mash and/or higher mash temp. The flavour was spot-on, though. I want to experiment with a thicker mash on an IPA first, since I'm most familiar/comfortable with tweaking other parameters on the style.

Palmer recommends 158F; I think that would be a good start... I find that Carafoam adds to the caramel flavour too much to use in improving body past a certain point.

So not a lot of hops in this one Richard? No flavor / aroma hops? Tried this and it was excellent...

I would expect a Scottish 70 to be higher abv - is there something I should do to get it up a bit without really changing the flavor a whole lot?

Very little at all; this is one of the most malt-forward styles out there.

3.2-3.9% - this one is to-style, even towards the higher end of strength. There are some EXTREMELY BAD examples of the Scottish 60/70/80 out there, for example anything McEwans is going to be absolutely terrible. I used to live close enough to the brewery in Edinburgh that I could smell the brew day, and lets just say it was about as appetising as the end result is.

Re-running this with EKG instead of Hallertau Tr. to equivalent IBUs. After a little experimentation recently I came to the conclusion that my mash temps were 2-4 degrees below what I originally measure due to the temperature dropping really fast during the initial mash temp. Gonna try measuring the temp over time with this one...

That was the most interest I'd ever had in a tapped out keg :P

Thanks man, appreciate the good review :)
