At this moment going to a Nitrogen Keg set up isn't going to happen. My local hombrew shop has the metal mini kegs with a carbonation setup that uses the small CO2 or N2 cartriges. Althought is sounds like I still may not get the desired cascade effect or the very fine head (I'm understanding this is a product of the Nitrogen, the tap, or the widget?).

But it still sounds like a good experiement to conduct. Anyone had any negative comments regarding these mini keg setups?

Luckly I live in Cincinnati where Listerman Manufacturing is located and have seen these on their store shelfs.

Those mini-kegs sound primo! You could fill a few mini-kegs with the same brew and experiment with different mixes of CO2/Nitrogen in each one.

Using honey or even a blended honey cause it's still convertible sugars. Grains convert at approximately 67% and honey/sugars/syrups convert at 93%. Using the honey at the start of the boil will Jack up the alcohol content. Add it later in the boil and it increases the honey flavor. No matter when you add it, it makes the beer really creamy and rich. When you prime the beer for bottling add 2 tablespoons of honey to the priming sugar. It masks the taste of the priming sugar gives a much nicer head. When you do your grains (all grain or exract) add a pound of flaked wheat or flaked oats. It doesn't impact the taste but enhances the head of the beer. Better lacing with a richer head. 5 gallon batch add 2 pounds of honey. The Webstaurantstore.com has great prices on bulk honey. I have gotten honey for beer and mead there for $15.00 for 5lbs.

I've steeped flaked oats in wheat beer with good success.

I did 1 gallon of flaked oats for a 5 gallon batch.

Flaked oats will give you a "slick" mouthfeel. Flaked barley should give more of a "creamy" mouthfeel.
