Yes, holy crap. What are you doing to get that whipped cream head on those beers? My head retention is ok but I've been toying with the idea of a 160F rest to increase. Anybody have thoughts?
Ken step mashes lagers, but I think he single infuses ales. I'm a big fan of 3% flaked barley for foam. My foam is similar, don't always capture it fully in pics.
Edit - Ken, didn't mean to speak for you ! Just made me think of what I do.
no worries Jon. yes correct- single infusion my ales except my alt. its just at 149F single infusion for 75 mins. quite honestly its just the loads of flameout hops creating that sticky luscious head in my IPA IMO.
