Just mash higher... 156 to 158 will give you a full body with residual sweetness.

I just kegged this brew maybe 2 and a half weeks ago and its great.

It's best to let this carb up properly and sit for atleast 2 weeks to get the best taste possible.

If under carbed just like any beer the hops come out a lot more bitter. By letting the beer properly carb up and age for 2 weeks the beer really mellows out and is fantastic.

What did you carb at? I just made this for the first time a couple days ago. I'll be kegging it in 3, maybe 4 weeks.

Mine has been on CO2 at 40* and 11 psi for about a week and I've noticed a slight harshness that I attributed to water. Could be it's under carbed.

That should give me 2.4 volumes of CO2. Is that too low for this style?

According to http://www.tastybrew.com/calculators/carbonation.html. 12 psi at 40* should be good. They recommend 2.45 volumes for a blonde ale.

Edit: Tasty brew also has a priming calc for the bottlers.

I always notice a harshness or astringent bitterness with this brew until it's been in the keg for a few weeks. I have guessed it was carb bite because I've never noticed this when bottling, only when force carbing in the keg. Could be that the beer is green also.
