You could also mash a little shorter too. Try mashing for 45 minutes instead of 60, although I'm not for sure that will make the difference you're looking for.

Sorry about the rant but I just had this same discussion with a new employee who thinks Old Rasputin is a bland old school beer with no real flavor.
I haven't eaten at a McDonalds or any other true fast food joint in years. Actually, I take that back. I had a McDonalds quarter pounder a few years ago and felt awful for the rest of the day. I swear, your skin starts to smell like McDonalds after eating there. And it doesn't smell good.
Not a big fan of krinkle cut fries either.
My order of fries, from best to worst (that I've had) are
1 Five Guys (best burgers too)
2 McDonalds (when hot and fresh out the grease)
3 Wendy's (2nd best burgers)
4 Taco Hell
5 Burger King
I can't say anything about "whataburger" as I have never had one. But McDonald's fries are the best fast food fries when they are hot out the basket. If they wait under a heat lamp for a few minutes they turn to garbage. Wendy's hamburgers arre usually better than McDonald's though. Agree they don't seem as good as they once did.I don't get the fascination with McDonald's fries. They're too skinny. I don't like many fast food fries anyway, there's no crinkle cuts! Although if I had to choose, I'd say Wendy's fries are my favorite. But then again, I almost never eat fast food and if I do, it's Wendy's. Spicy chicken sammich, fries, and a frosty. Nummers!
I ran out of beer last winter, so I had to do a partial boil on the stove and top off with ice to chill/dilute. I don't think there are any major benefits to a full boil for an average-gravity beer.I'm surprised that you said that, being the experienced brewer that you are.
In the 60's and sunny yesterday. Should come close to 60 again today, but with rain moving in. It is November, right? I'm going to have to mow the lawn again this weekend. Usually by now I've put the lawnmower away for the year.This has been quite a nice Autumn for the Midwest. It's November and there are still colorful leaves on a lot of the trees. Usually there's some stupid wind or rain storm that brings all the leaves down right around now or before...
HEY YOU KIDS!!!Gawd, that's gonna be me someday, I swear...
