If all your other recipes suffer from head retention, there's a solution which doesn't involve adding ingredients to your grist. Something in your chain from grain to glass is off. There's no real reason an all-malt brew should suffer from foam problems.
If you want to take it off-thread, that's fine; I think we should get to the bottom of this.
EDITED TO ADD: Keeping in mind, of course, that I'm about to skip off to Missoula, MT for work this afternoon.
