It could afford another week or so to carb out so I'll be patient on the rest. It also has no head at all. None! I'll work on that in the future.
I thought I had screwed it all up but I'm glad I read enough here to know not to worry about it because it did turn out afterall!
After your required conditioning time, make sure your glasses are very clean. Head retention is affected by a number of things, but one you can control is how clean your glasses are. I've notice a signifcant head retention uptick once i started hand washing my glasses.
