If less than half of those currently directly subscribed to the HBD sent in a mere $5.00, the HBD would be able to easily meet its annual expenses, with room to spare for next year.

What I care about is the grist it makes and the beer made from that. Learn what a good crush looks like and how it acts on your system and go from there. Even if someone can tell you what their gap is set to, it's no guarantee that the same setting will work for you. As Dan Listermann said "you're making grist, not gaps"! ---------------->Denny Return to table of contents
