Does anyone have any experience with using Cara Pils in an extract kit such as Mr Beer? My Mr Beer batches all seem somewhat watery with poor head retention, and was wondering is adding Cara Pils would help.

I've never seen someone do a partial or specialty grain with mrbeer, but I've done several of them myself. I never thought they were watered down, and had excellent head retention with the "premium refills" that had ume cans.

You could try adding less water to make it more concentrated and higher SG.
