Ok cool. Just curious. 1007 takes a while to clear, and that's what I use most times. Looks awesome !

Awesome, Ken. Thanks. The body on it was ridiculous; very fully. Malt character was very nice too. I'm going to be trying the 60/60 mash schedule as well. Did it on a 3 gallon batch of helles last week. Felt kinda bummed about spending so much time on the mash to only get 3 gallons out of the deal... Oh well. Doing it on a Kolsch tomorrow.

yeah that's something i've noticed on the 60/60 mash...body and mouthfeel seems different/enhanced to me without residual sweetness.

Looks great!  I don't have anything to back this up, but I'm wondering if there isn't something to the boil kettle foam skimming helping your head retention.  I get great foam on the initial pour, but most of my beers fall into the "good" category for retention.  The foam typically drops to a modest layer or thin ring after some time.  Pale ales are an exception to this, but I give credit to the hops there.
