Default Its not how you start, its how you finish

Got done with my first attempt at an AG robust porter. Turned out nice with the exception of the finish. It ended a little "soft", or maybe "weak"? What helps a beer finish nicely with a well balanced feel on the palette?

What does soft taste like? Light mouthfeel? Too sweet? Aroma issue?

Sorry. It just finished with a lighter body than I would have liked. Flavor and aroma were fine, but I would have liked for a stronger "meatier" end when it sits on your palette.

try either putting some carapils in the mash next time or mash a couple degrees warmer. Both add to mouthfeel. Depends on the recipe which one you do.
