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. As always, donors and donations are publicly acknowledged and accounted for on the HBD web page.

---------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: Tue, 15 Sep 2009 06:52:02 -0700 (PDT) From: Glyn and Mary <graininfuser at yahoo.com> Subject: re: swing top and rousing yeast Buy replacement rubber gasket at local homebrew store or online. Pull off old, put on new. Rousing yeast... some yeast in primary/secondary can stall. By agitating the fermentor you can get the yeast back in suspension and release CO2. In the bottle you are getting the yeast back in suspension so they can work on the sugars that are there. Again, some yeast need to be roused, some don't. Glyn So.
