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: Tue, 24 Feb 2009 20:41:52 +1100 From: Stephen Neilsen <stephen.neilsen at gmail.com> Subject: Metric Inches Oh dear...well of course in a constantly changing world (I am only talking about increasingly accurate measurement) we have changes. Anyway on a Brew (ish) related topic it has been said that the inch was the measure of 5 corns of barley, placed end to end. There was also that story about Jim Morrison of The Doors, but that is for less sober forums... SN in Kanbeera Return to table of contents
Date: Tue, 24 Feb 2009 14:22:58 -0500 From: Kai Troester <kai at braukaiser.com> Subject: Lot analysis data for Weyermann malts? Does anyone know of a source where I can buy bags of Weyermann malt AND get lot analysis data for them? I have been buying my malt from Crosby Baker through my LHBS. While I?m willing to pay the premium for this excellent German malt (I pay ~$60 for the 55 lb bag) I don?t understand why I cannot get the lot analysis data if I?m paying this price. Granted a home brewer should not have to worry about detailed data like this but let me be the judge of this. I have contacted Weyermann and Crosby Baker about this. Weyermann told me that I?m ordering too little to get the data from them. Something I understand as I don?t think they should be responsible to handle the inquires from all the home brewers who want data for their bags of malt. But Crosby Baker as the importer should be able to get this data from Weyermann and give it to me on request. I'd really hate to stop buying malt from my LHBS just because of this.
