Posted in thread: Why Don't My Beers Have As Much Flavor/Body As "Better" Beers? on 08-21-2016 at 11:38 AM
As others have said, the lack of "oopmpf" can be style dependent. If the beer is thin, you can
try the following to add some body: (i) carapils; (ii) thicker mash; (iii) higher mash temp. If
the hops ...

If you have the Jaybird false bottom, check out the dip tubes they sell. You definitely want to
pull from below the false bottom. You will have much less dead space and have a more efficient
