For future batches, it definitely helps to consult the style guidelines for the major attributes. If you are looking for a classic style taste, you want to be squarely in those ranges. eg an american pale ale should be in the 1.045-1.060 range and 30-45+ IBU. Compared to other pale ales, sierra nevada is pretty full and hoppy, so if you are trying for something like that, you shoot for the upper half of those ranges.

You don't always have to brew "to style", but it is a great starting point. eg you like a certain beer but wish it was a little more (whatever.) Or, you want to brew something that is between 2 styles. It really helps you get a feeling for what someone elses recipe might taste like and definitely helps if you are making your own recipes.

Distilled water is fine for brewing, especially for extract brewing. The extract has already been mashed and doesn't need anything added to it.

I use RO or distilled water for brewing all the time.

I'm not sure what the OP means by the "beer taste" going away too quickly. A good beer doesn't really linger on the palate, so I'm not sure what is going on. Is it not firmly bitter on the swallow or something like that?

That's pretty much what I mean, I know it's not going to coat your mouth like a full-bodied wine or syrup, but there is almost no residual bitterness or other taste at all really after I swallow. I was expecting some sort of "you just had a sip of beer" taste but I don't get much.

I think I may have added too much top off water and thus didn't get the OG high enough and thus it dried out as some of the other posters have suggested. I'll be more careful about that part in the future, thanks everyone!
