Congrats on your first one. They'll only get better from this point on - lots of lessons learned, I'm sure.

main thing i've learn'd is that it's nearly impossible to have an infected batch or ruin the beer. i messed up so many times, where it could easily have been infected. i put my hand in the wert to get out the black rubber thing, and dumped my hydrometer sample back into the bucket.

Sounds like maybe the beer needs more conditioning time at room temp. Then 2 weeks fridge time works well to get thicker head & longer lasting carbonation. 4 to 5 weeks conditioning time is good.

To help with a good head retention keep things clean from beginning to end. No detergent residue and no fat/oils residue. Multiple rinses of the equipment with very hot tap water work well. This applies to the bottles and the drinking glasses.
