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.

This is hardly news. See the Wikipedia article on Tetracycline, which contains a reference to http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m1134/is_4_109/ai_62324477/, published over 10 years ago.

Date: Wed, 8 Sep 2010 07:53:32 -0400 From: Fred L Johnson <FLJohnson52 at nc.rr.com> Subject: Re; Extract of Maple Syrup Scott Stihler asks for the potential extract of maple syrup. The value I have in my homegrown software is 28.9 units*gallons/lb with a color of 15 degrees Lovibond/38.6 EBC, but we all know maple syrup comes in lots of different colors and who knows how variable the specific gravity is. One can simply measure it with a hydrometer by diluting it in a precise manner and calculating the gravity based on the dilution. I read that it is about 65% fermentable at the following site: http://beer-brewing.suite101.com/article.cfm/brewing_beer_with_non_malt_sugars Fred L Johnson Apex, North Carolina, USA Return to table of contents

I have found that a pound in a five gallon batch is plenty to balance and complement the chocolate and black patent malts in a porter.

Product came out interesting - no real maple flavor was left, just a light smokeyness and very little sweetness.
