Thanks for your help.
I cooked it for roughly 7 hours at 200-225. About 5.5 hours into the cooking, my roommate needed the oven (how selfish, right?
) so I took the dutch oven out and let it simmer on the stove top for 45 minutes, then back in the oven. One word of warning, since it was simmering, I stirred it occasionally, which caused the garlic head to break up. I got most of it out but had a bit of 'paper' in a few servings.
The results were excellent. They would have been perfect if I realized soaking the beans was not the same as de-gassing the beans.
