Go figure... I just popped a couple tonight and they form a beautiful head. Just a few days ago this was not the case. I opened a third just to be sure. I guess what you guys are consistantly saying about "giving it time" is the key. Patience and homebrew together are virtue.

That foam on top originally was bottle krauzens,,,,just the yeast doing their job and carbing the bottles....most people walk away from their bottles in a closet for 3 weeks and never notice it....

Read this for more info on bottling,,,and watch the video http://www.homebrewtalk.com/558191-post101.html

planned on drinking one every sunday till they seem ready
I do this and find out that once they are at their BEST . . .there are none left because I start drinking them with joy after 3 weeks. Then once Week number 6 or 7 come around and they are REALLY good . . . I have 4 left.

THUS - brew a TON of batches so this will not be a problem.

Nice! The same thing happened to me when I was bottling my last batch...darn bottle just didn't feel right under the capper so I went to pull the capper off and pop, off comes the top inch of bottle. Oh well, this stuff happens.
