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. Please consider it. Financial Projection As of 18 July 2011 *** Condition: Green & Healthy *** 501(c)3 revoked in process of retroactive reinstatement. See Site News on http://hbd.org for details and progress.

---------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: Wed, 7 Sep 2011 00:54:38 -0400 From: David Huber <n3uks.dave at gmail.com> Subject: RE: Ghetto aeration system I have heard John Palmer mention that one school of thought on the chemistry of head formation and stability is that the proteins responsible are one-and-done, meaning that they only make a bubble once, so the downside to using an aquarium pump running up a lot of foam is that you are losing potential foam in your finished beer. I would be interested to hear whether people who aerate for long periods of time find this to be true or not in their beer. Dave Huber Jessup, MD Return to table of contents
Date: Wed, 7 Sep 2011 10:12:04 -0500 From: Scott Birdwell <defalcos at sbcglobal.net> Subject: Ghetto aeration system A friend of mine rigged up a ghetto air filter system to go along with the ghetto aeration system. He took a prescription pill bottle, drilled a hole in the cap and bottom, glued the 1/8" ID hose into those holes, and stuffed the inside with sterile cotton balls, which he disposed of after use.
