It could be, or you could not be getting complete conversion. Do you have any iodine or Iodophor to check for conversion? That would be very helpful in this case.

Can you give us a typical recipe of a beer that came out thin? Then we can help by telling if it was recipe related, temperature related, water related, or something else.
