So they've been in the low 60s apart from the last one. I aimed for 70 and over adjusted the calculator. About a litre of cold brought it down and it sat there happily for near 90minutes I suppose.
I've never mashed that high but I have gone the other way and mashed at 64C for 90mins. I achieved 94% attenution with notty (although I think 5% table sugar would have helped that low attenuation)

Higher attenuation seems to be the desired outcome for most people. I'm the opposite really, in that I'd rather a lower ABV due to my ability to guzzle paired with my inability to stop guzzling.

I do like a nice strong beer though. I should try to sit back relax and sip though.

I'm the same. I'm in the process of developing my house bitter. It's 3.5%, so an Ordinary Bitter. I really like low abv session beers, although I do like the odd stronger (about 5%-6%) beer
