I'm on the carapills bandwagon...... (mabe time for a poll here - sorry about the post hijack)

I add carapills not for 'a head' so to speak..., more for head retention.
I haven't noticed it adding any extra body or sweetness from the 5% additions I use, but I have noticed a drop in head performance in beers I don't use it in.....

..................................................

agraham - Munich lager is a cracker of a yeast.... Just don't be in a hurry to rack off the primary yeast cake... do a diacetyl rest or allow a week or so in secondary/keg at room temps before cold conditioning and you'll be fine... B)

Asher for now

One thing I'll say for CaraPils is I like the lacework it leaves on the glass.

Pils with a rather sticky head. :blink:
