I have had about 10 of my red ales so far and it is close to 5 weeks conditioned. One of the first ones I drank I put in the fridge for only a couple hours, and it had a great 2 finger head or maybe a bit larger, but I heard advice that you should leave them in the fridge for atleast a few days. So I tried that with one and left it in there for about 6 days. First I notice that the bottle has lost its pressure to a degree( I use plastic soda bottles). Then I pour it and it gets no head. I even attempted to pour it a little more vigorously towards the end. I can't figure this out. Could there be a leak?
Both bottles had great carbonation and they both taste the same. Could anyone throw out some ideas for me as to why this happened? It wasn't just one bottle, because I left another one in the fridge for awhile and then it too had no head.
Thank you very much for the advice,
