---------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: Tue, 7 Sep 2010 11:53:54 -0400 From: Pete Calinski <petec.100 at gmail.com> Subject: Ancient Nubians Drank Antibiotic-Laced Beer People have been using antibiotics for nearly 2,000 years, suggests a new study, which found large doses of tetracycline embedded in the bones of ancient African mummies. What's more, they probably got it through beer, and just about everyone appears to have drank it consistently throughout their lifetimes, beginning early in childhood. While the modern age of antibiotics began in 1928 with the discovery of penicillin, the new findings suggest that people knew how to fight infections much earlier than that--even if they didn't actually know what bacteria were. http://news.discovery.com/archaeology/antibiotic-beer-nubia.html Or http://ow.ly/2Avhn Return to table of contents
Date: Tue, 07 Sep 2010 17:56:11 -0700 From: <stihlerunits at mosquitobytes.com> Subject: Extract of Maple Syrup I was wondering if anybody happens to know the predicted extract of maple syrup. I was thinking of brewing a maple syrup porter or stout but I've been unable to find a value for the extract in terms of specific gravity per pound of maple syrup per gallon of wort.
