Maybe not what you're looking for, but starting with 1-gal all-grain batches really helped me understand the process while not wrestling with the equipment. Did it all on the stovetop.

For what it's worth, my WHHA after 2 weeks in the bottle has some head. Minimal, but about what I'd expect after 2 weeks. (Also Northern Brewer kit)
