Hi all, I am having an issue I cannot seem to resolve on my own by continuous reading. I am a newbie and I bottled my 3rd batch 14 days ago, a Cincinnati Pale Ale. This was a 2.5 gal extract brew. I used unhopped extract to experiment with bitterness and flavoring. I fermented with Nottingham dry yeast. I re-hydrated the yeast before pitching. I fermented on the trub for 6 days @ 70-degrees. There was no activity from the airlock and I racked to the secondary and left it there for 10 days @ 70-degrees. There was considerable sediment in the secondary after racking. I then racked to a bottling bucket but I used carb drops instead of sugar for bottling. I left the bottles to carbonate at the same temps before I moved to the fridge yesterday. The bottles seemed to be hardened from carbonation. I let my impatience get me and after a few hours, I popped a top. I did get a pish when I removed the cap. However, once again, no head at all. Third batch with the same result, no head! What am I doing wrong? If I tell the wife I need more money to keg, do any of you have a spare room?
