Hi all

Had my first taste of an esb lager I did about a month back. I have read the pilsner is a bit bitter and I find this in the draught also. The thing is, and I find this to be true in most of my beers except a wheat beer I did a few months back, the beer seems watery. I only fill to 20 litres all the time. I have read maybe filling to 18 liters. The beer seems to have no middle for lack of a better description. Should I be adding something else to compensate? Maybe some dme? I used dextrose to bulk prime.

Any thoughts or suggestions

Thanks

Adam

Try steeping some light crystal or caramunich malt(my fave),100/250 gms and reduce volume to 18 litres.
It will improve body ,add a subtle caramel sweetness and improve head retention. :D

Ads7,
As suggested by Brauluver, a steep with some grain would help maybe 100g - 150g of Carapils. This would add a bit more body.

Cheers
