Yep, all grain. I've never had one that laced so nicely either, this is the first time. The only thing I did different was I boiled the living sh!t out of it and I used Whirlfloc. I usually don't boil so vigorously but my efficiency was a bit lower than expected and I didn't have any malt extract on hand so I decided just to boil the hell out of it to hit my OG. I lucked out and hit my OG exactly but only ended up with 4.7 gallons instead of 5.
I think for my next batch I'm going to adjust my numbers and plan on boiling it really vigorously to see if that results in head retention like this every time. This head is the thickest, creamiest head I've ever had on one of my beers. It's like the head you would expect from a Guinness.
