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 Financial Projection as of 31 May 2013 *** Condition: Cautiously Optimistic *** 501(c)3 status rescinded. Refiled 1023 for retroactive status 25 June 2012. Per the IRS, our case must be assigned to an agent. IRS is currently assigning applications received in March 2012. Ours was received in late June. To current financials, HBD is officially bankrupt in August. Due to recent developments, HBD.org will likely have to be dissolved per the bylaws once funding runs out. Projected 2012 Budget $3,145.01 Expended against projection $1,586.99 Unplanned expenditures ($ 152.00) Projected Excess/(Shortfall) ($ 89.84) As always, donors and donations are publicly acknowledged and accounted for on the HBD web page.

---------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: Sat, 27 Jul 2013 11:12:52 -0400 From: "Jeff McNally" <jeff ri at cox.net> Subject: re: Kwak beer recipe Hi All, In HBD #6036 Carlos Nunez asked for help with a recipe for Kwak (made by Bosteels Brewery in Belgium). The book "Clone Brews" by Tess and Mark Szamatulski has a recipe for Kwak that seems like it should get you pretty close. Here it is: OG 1.081 to 1.086 FG 1.015 to 1.019 IBUs 18 to 20 SRM 15 11 lbs Belgian 2 row pilsner malt 2.5 lbs German munich malt 5 oz Special B malt 1.5 lbs Belgian clear candi sugar 2/3 oz challenger, 60 min boil 1 oz styrian goldings, 15 min boil 1/4 oz challenger, 3 min boil 1/4 oz Czech saaz, 3 min boil 1 tsp Irish moss, 15 min boil Wyeast 1762 Belgian Abbey II (first choice) Wyeast 1214 Belgian Abbey (second choice) Mash all the grains in 150F water for 90 min Add the candi sugar with the first hop addition Ferment at 70 to 73F Jeff McNally Tiverton, RI (652.2 miles, 90.0 deg) A.R. www.southshorebrewclub.org Return to table of contents
Date: Sat, 27 Jul 2013 12:45:34 -0400 (EDT) From: "Darrell G. Leavitt" <leavitdg at plattsburgh.edu> Subject: Kwak Carlos; I made an attempt at a Kwak back in 1999. It was based upon David Miller's book (which I have now given away), and came out pretty good. I did not record the Whitelabs yeast number, but it was a Trappist that could tolerate high gravity. The ingredients were: 8 lb Franc-Belgian Pils 4 lb Halcyon 1/2 lb brown sugar 1/8 cup black malt 4 oz Maltodextrin 1/2 lb wheat some candi sugar (not sure how much, but I think a pound) y 2 stage infusion, 1 oz northern brewse at 90 min 1 oz fuggles at 60 1 oz saaz at 30 yeast was slurry from previous batch Final gravity was 9% I am sure others have recipes that may be more true to the Kwak style. I made this quite a while ago, but as I recall it tasted good. Happy Brewing! Darrell Return to table of contents
