Cara pils

Will adding cara pils to my steeping grains bump up my og. I just brewed a cream ale and my og was 1.047 instead of 1.040.

Carapils will add to the specific gravity as unfermentable sugars. Points Per Gallon per pound is about 33.

Ok I used 8 oz for a 5 gal batch. I guess that explains it. So unfermentable sugars will not increase abv.

No measurable increase in ABV. Will increase the size of the head, retention of the head, and adding body to your beer.

Got it thanks flars.
