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.

---------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: Fri, 15 May 2009 06:44:23 -0400 From: Fred L Johnson <FLJohnson52 at nc.rr.com> Subject: Re: priming solutions Regarding the recommendations for priming a batch of beer, there is no way one can evenly distribute a concentrated sugar solution into a batch of beer without significant stirring or long periods of time, so the recommendation to prime in the fermentor before racking off the settled yeast will only result in unevenly primed beer or essentially fully resuspended yeast. There are ways to precisely prime each bottle using a concentrated solution of sugar and a pipetting device--my standard method. Priming each bottle minimizes introduction of air into the batch.
