I think munich can self convert and with the crystal you used you should get some body, with it fully conditoned and good carbonation it should have some body,maybe change up the yeast if you are still not satisfied after some ageing.
Ok then just seen your recent post,yeah, give it some time you cant really ever judge it completly young.flaked barley can really get you some good head retention by the way also.

The first few post a ways back said that the beer was probably young. I wanted to expand on that and say that when Acetaldehyde, is present it covers up the character, no, the subtle character of a beer. You can still taste the stronger notes, but the more subtle tastes are undetectable. I have noticed that all of my beers benefit from a few days of cold conditioning.
