So just bottled my most recent old bruin last week. Taste test was amazing but thin in body. Now admittedly this was uncarbonated and room temp. After bottling and carbing, should I expect this to change any? or am I just kinda outta luck? And if outta luck would using lactose work to up the body or will the various besties eat throught that too most likely?

Sour beers are thin. Nature of the beast. Lactose would be fermented also, so don't put that in your bottle!

Carbonation will add some mouthfeel, but not much. If you want more mouthfeel in a sour you might have to pastuerize it with heat or potassium metabisulphate, then blend with something else.
