I use StarSan. Mixed up a fresh batch before this last bottling.

The carbonation seems fine. Its just the head when poured is nonexistent.

The two beers that I've done with this method have had almost NO head, even when poured out of the bottle vigorously. Both beers had a nice head dispensing off the keg, especially the RIS.

I believe I've read that a protein rest is necessary when not-fully modified malts are used? Is this true? And, what malts are considered "not fully modified"?

How to know when a protein rest is needed?

I was hoping this question would be answered in reading Designing Great Beers, but it wasn't.

What are the rules for when a protein rest is necessary? What publications cover this topic?

Thanks!

Is the general consensus that it would be a bad idea to add the tomatoes to the mash because of the acidity?

I think this is a killer idea. I'm definitely going to try something similar out.

On all of my AG brews so far (4) I've heated my sparge water to 170 then added it to the tun. I believe I got this number from Palmer and he states that anything higher could release tanins.

Cool deal, now a question about their use:

I plan on rinsing and soaking them in hot water before use. Then, do I just mix them in when I'm doughing in?
