When you say kit are you talking about the bagged kits that Annabelle has or the can itself. If you used the can and added sugar that could be part of your problem. I suggest using Malt Extract to make up the remainder of your fermentables. If you want more body you can use specific types of extract. Laaglander is less fermentable and will leave more unfermented sugars to contribute to body.

Glad you are interested in the club and I hope to see you at the meeting. feel free to email me directly if you do not know where the meeting is.

: I have just recently started my apprenticeship in "brewing" here in Virginia Beach in the last 6 months. My first brew of course was that of a "Bitter" from which I purchased at the Cake and Wine Hobby shop. My question is that of a puzzling one to me. The beer turned out well except for the "body" of the beer; it seemed to be...weak. I did notice though as the beer aged that the "body" of the beer would become more enhanced but still rather weak. Any help would be appreciated. By the way, I do own a copy of "The New Complete Joy of Home Brewing," by Charlie Papazian. OH! and I hope to meet each and everyone of you at a club meeting! Thanks for your time.
