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: Mon, 3 Aug 2009 00:23:50 -0400 From: "Kai Troester" <kai at braukaiser.com> Subject: Re: carbonation-temperature-pressure formula > When I sat down at my machine to > have a look at this I found an e-mail from Fred with a formula using > just such an approach that he had found on Kai's site (www.braumeister.com > ). The place A.J. was refering to was www.braukaiser.com which is a play on my user name on home brewing forums (Kaiser). The credit for the formula goes to hobbybrauer.de where I found it in a carbonation calculator that was uploaded to that site: http://www.hobbybrauer.de/modules.php?name=Downloads&d_op=getit&lid=74 The formula may have been derived from Kunze's data. In his Malting and Brewing science he lists the CO2 content of beer at various temperatures assuming atmospheric head pressure: temp (C) -w/w % CO2 0 - 0.317 1 - 0.306 2 - 0.296 3 - 0.286 4 - 0.276 5 - 0.267 6 - 0.258 8 - 0.241 10 - 0.226 15 - 0.193 20 - 0.165 To get the CO2 content at a given head pressure, simply multiply the atmospheric pressure CO2 content for the beer temperature with 1 plus the head pressure in bar (1 bar = 100 kPa = 14.5 psi) E.g. temp = 10C, over pressure = 0.5 bar, CO2 (w/w%) = 1.5 * 0.226% = 0.339 % = 3.39 g/l CO2 = 1.695 vol CO2.

Date: Mon, 3 Aug 2009 10:22:13 -0400 From: Mark Prior <priorm at hotmail.com> Subject: Reinforced Vinyl Tubing I use a FDA approved reinforced vinyl tubing for hot liquid transfers with my pump. The tubing I use is similar to the 1/2" reinforced tubing sold by More Beer: http://morebeer.com/view_product/17603//Tubing_-_Reinforced_Vinyl_1_2_in_ Now for my question. Why is the tubing only approved upto 158F? Is it because there is a risk of rupture above this temperature or because dangerous toxins are leached out of the vinyl above this temperature? Has anyone seen anything definitive regarding this? Can you point me to a source? I've tried googling this without success. Thanks, Mark Prior Return to table of contents
Date: Mon, 03 Aug 2009 20:00:37 -0400 From: stencil <etcs.ret at verizon.net> Subject: Popcorn Is there any experience with the use of popcorn, in pound quantities, as the maize contribution in a CAP or CACA? Does the flavor carry over into the finished brew? Could I achieve the same flavor effects by toasting grits? Are the popping oils successfully trapped by the grain bed during the sparge? Autumn's on the way - pemmican con queso and popcorn-maple ale, mmm-mm. gds, stencil Return to table of contents
