I brewed my first all grain batch on December 31st, I am one to jump in with both feet and did a party gyle. I brewed the vanilla bourbon porter that I found on this site, for the first running I did the vanilla bourbon, the second runnings I did a coffee porter.
After two weeks in primary I cold crashed and kegged the coffee, i transferred the vanilla to a second carboy and added the vanilla beans. Two days later I kegged the vanilla. I let both sit on a cold room for a couple of days and then pi it the vanilla in my keezer and left the coffee in the cold room about 50 degrees. I carbed them both at the same pressure.
Today I tried the vanilla version and while it was tasty it didn't have any head. The coffee version has plenty of head.
Does the higher gravity 1080 vs 1050 take that much longer to achieve the same level of carbonation?
