I don't think force carbonating would effect head retention all that much. I would think the head retention issue would be a result more related to your brewing process. You can enhance body and head...

Thanks for the replies. And should it be taken out after say a week or 2? Would there be any problem with the sack getting caught in the out-tube if I wanted to tap the keg while it is in there?

5.5 hours of sparging? wow. Is that just because of the oats? I didn't know sparging could take anywhere near that long. What is the process you used?

Cool, thanks for the replies. So while conditioning in the bottles or keg (haven't decided yet) for a few months, leave at fermentation temp. or put in the fridge?
