Hmmm, interesting. Thanks for the response, Denny!Does amount of krausen foreshadow how your head retention in the beer will be? Is there a correlation there?
Could explain some of my head retention issues...my beer typically doesn't get a lot of krausen and I'm wondering what is affecting that. Comes down to water, I'm sure.
If anything, though, it would be the opposite. The theory is that there are foam positive substances in the beer and once they get used up, they aren't there for future foam production. In that case, a large krausen would actually cut down on later foam production.
