Yes, Beerito is a Vienna style Mexican lager; if that makes sense. Seems to be in the vein as Modelo Negra.

I was trying to make a beer under 5% just to have some low abv for the summer. It's not terrible, but I'd like to do it again, but better. :)

I was thinking about my water as well and I usually just add a campden tablet and call it good. The last time I had a problem with a beet that was this dry was a BGSA that I did a multi step mash where I think I made the wort super fermentable.

I am currently drinking a Vienna lager that I recently made and I was hoping to get some input from people here. I am looking to make a more malty type of Vienna lager, kinda of like Beerito from Oskar Blues. The problem i have with the recipe below is that it turned out very dry, almost astringent. I can't detect any off flavors, just super dry without any head retention or body. I think I may need to a rest in the low 150's instead of the 147 rest and mash out.

My main question is what sort of darker malts that people use in their Viennas that they feel give them a nice malt backbone? Should I just adjust the dark munich up?
The recipe is:
3.25# Wey. Floor Malt Pils
3.25# Wey. Vienna
1# Wey. CaraRed
1# Briess Dark Munich
.5 oz Merkur @ 60
1 oz Tett @ 15
WLP 835 - German Lager X
147 for 30 min
155 for 20 min
170 for 10 min

Just bought a Balcones barrel through Adventures in Homebrewing. Excited for my first barrel aged beer.
