Oh, it definitely continues to rise after pouring the beer...

Great tip on leaving the beer in the fridge for a week also. When conditioning, I leave them in the same closet I leave my fermenters in; however, I assumed that once they were cold in the fridge that they were ready.

I am definitely a noob.

This should help you. My first brew didn't have enough head, my second one was 1/2 perfect and 1/2 not enough (didn't fully dilute the sugar) and the 3rd was just right. Haha. Use the calculator and you'll be golden.

The head will continue to rise naturally after you finish pouring. The action of the pour creats a sort of vortex that builds head till it subsides on it's own.
I've had many beers that look much like a nitro pour,then get this carbonation bubble tornado in the glass. Dang,I wish I'd have got a streaming video of that. One of these days,I gotta show y'all that one! Twister beer...
