I need some advise. I brewed a Pumpkin Ale a while back and the flavor came out perfect. THe only problem was my SG was low and the beer is "watery" as my friends are calling it. It has very little body. I want to brew a 5 gallon batch of something to blend with it. I want to make a very full bodied beer that will still help compliment the pumpkin and spice flavor. Any suggestions???

Is this in a keg? If so, 8 ounces of maltdextrine will make a big difference in the body. Mixing the batch will dilute the spice & pumpkin.

It is in a keg.

The maltrodextrin does not need to be added when you boil the wort??

You can add MD at any time...

Just boil 2 C water and a couple oz of MD, let cool.

Relieve the pressure from the keg and add it. Re-pressurize...
