What gives a beer good head? A couple of my batches have had plenty of fizz, but the head disappears too quickly.
A clean glass with no soap residue and not cleaned in dishwasher with jetdry.
Head retention I think is dependent on protein content.
Some beers just don't maintain a large head.
The Coopers Real Ale is supposed to have good head retention, so I look forward to checking that one out.
Good head depends on protein content?! Too easy...

3-5% malted wheat should do the trick.

rye oughtta work too, no?
doesn't rye jsut give a crisp taste? That what I thought it was.
Also maybe some wheat and use 6 row instead?
Flaked barley can be used, though I don't know if it's appropriate for every style or not.
