Mash consistency or ratio is one of those black magic questions of all grain that I haven't seen a lot of discussion on. I have always considered it something you need to work with if the conversion your getting is not up to snuff. I use a RIMS system and run towards the wet side 1.75:1 or with big beers that barely fit my 10 gal mash tun will drop 1.25:1 for space. I do recirculate the entire mash process so grain is fit together aprox. the same either way if ya get my drift with more or less wort on top. I get consistent results from this process with conversion from 99% to 102%. Have only used software a few months for the brewing process but gravities showed complete conversion prior. Temperature of mash would control types of sugars for mouthfeel and sweetness or lower OG and crispness. Should I be paying more attention to my mash consistency for the type of finish I'm looking for?
