I reread this thread. I'm not sure I would mash my nuts.

For those who like nuts in their beer but then find they aren't getting any head, maybe try losing some of the fat. The presence of too much fat makes head nearly impossible.

I wish I was smarter because then I could develop special nuts that actually make head better, then lots of people would want to put my nuts in their beer. Fun way to make money, win win.

I have read this post several times and each time I get a bigger and bigger smile on my face. I have had a rough day and for some reason this just makes it alllllll better. Thanks Jim!

Nothing kills head faster than a cop knocking on the car window.

I have found that if you get the flavored spirit extracts you dont need to worry about it affecting the head. I made a pretty good nutty amber ale by adding a couple of drops of some hazel nut spirit extract
