Feel free to post the recipe and people will help you make the proper adjustments.
if you used any corn sugar/dextrose in the primary fermentation, that'll reduce the malt flavor. Sugar lends alcohol, but no body or flavor (besides a pure alcohol flavor which usually isn't noticed until it hits a certain level).
Congrats on a successful first brew!
