A much easier way is to take about 1/2 to 1 gallon of the first runnings and put them in a seperate pot and reduce it at least to half and return it to to main boil.

To Rookie, I was wondering why would it improve maltinnes? The reason I was not sure about decoction is because this is Scottish ale style and I never read decoction used for this kind of beer.

Didn't brew anything. Went away for the weekend and then yesterday's brewing day turned into a mowing day! Oh well...gotta get some brewing done soon! Otherwise, I'll be the one with no homebrew!
