Congratulations to Peter and Best Wishes to next year's entrants! Cheers! Rob Moline Lallemand "The More I Know About Beer, The More I Realize I Need To Know More About Beer!" Peter Symons Biography I am 55 years old and live in Oatley, Sydney. My original motivation to start brewing was the lack of decent ale in the land of mega swill lager. I have now been brewing for about 10 years, initially from kits then partial mash then in 2000 after backing the winner Brew (what else) in the Melbourne Cup full mashing with the acquisition of a 60l kettle, burner etc from my winnings. I am a member of Extra Special Brewers homebrew club, a great bunch of guys who fearlessly taste test every month. I have a Graduate Certificate in Brewing from Ballarat University, have judged at state and national levels and I passed the BJCP exam in January this year, and am now at Recognised level. My day job involves providing project, engineering and line management services in railway signalling through my company Tritun Pty Ltd. I am a Fellow of the Institution of Railway Signalling Engineers, a Master Project Director and a Member of the Australian Institute of Project Management. The Lallemand scholarship provides an excellent opportunity to extend my brewing knowledge. Return to table of contents
Date: Fri, 18 Jul 2008 07:22:31 -0400 From: Fred L Johnson <FLJohnson52 at nc.rr.com> Subject: Sustaining Members of the Homebrew Digest I would willing to become a "sustaining member" of the Homebrew Digest if enough of us were willing to join in to keep the amount small. I certainly don't want the HBD to be some exclusive club of "members", but perhaps if enough of us were willing to be sustaining" members, then the subscription could be kept free to everyone else. Pat: I'm sure you would need a head-count on how many would be willing to do this. We would need for you to set a goal for the number of sustaining members willing to donate X dollars annually to keep the HBD afloat. If we could double that number of donors, the fee would be half, and as everyone saw the dollar amount coming down, more and more would join. For example, how many would you need to contribute $10 annually to sustain this? Perhaps a quick count among those of us getting the digest now would give you some idea of how feasible this would be? Perhaps posting a sign-up sheet on the web site would get this started, and you could continue to post updates to the HBD so that everyone reading the Digest would see the current figures. Sometimes it takes such a crisis as this for me to reach into my wallet, but I'd be happy to give a small amount regularly/annually to keep the HBD going.
