Default Lagering and Tannins/Astringency

Hi,

I've got a lager with a some noticeable astringent character. I am pretty sure that this is due to my crush, which is a whole other issue I am working on.

Anyway, I'm wondering if I can improve the beer over time via further lagering. As anyone noticed if lagering reduces tannins and or astringency by a noticeable amount? Or better yet, can you point me to a reliable resource on the matter.

Thanks!

I don't know specifically about astringency that may not be tannin related but tannins will precipitate out of your beer over time.
