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 13 Jun 2010 Projected 2010 Budget $3305.65 Expended against projection $2500.06 Projected Excess/(Shortfall) $ 422.01 As always, donors and donations are publicly acknowledged and accounted for on the HBD web page.

---------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: Thu, 16 Sep 2010 08:59:08 -0400 From: Ric Cunningham <wilypig at gmail.com> Subject: RE: Male hop flowers Chuck, The bb sized buds/flowers you noticed are indeed male hop flowers. It is not uncommon for the varieties you have mentioned to produce these during times of stress (environmental or nutritional). They are sterile so no worries. They will not affect anything and should not return during better times. Return to table of contents
Date: Mon, 20 Sep 2010 09:17:22 -0600 From: stevejones at franklinbrew.org Subject: 2nd Annual FRANKLINSTEIN Homebrew Competition We are looking for entries and judges for the 2nd Annual FRANKLINSTEIN Homebrew competition will be held on SUNDAY, November 14th at Depot Street Brewing, 904 Depot Street, Jonesborough TN. This will be an AHA/BJCP Sanctioned competition accepting entries in categories 1 thru 23 and special category 29, MONSTER Beers. This category is for beers made up of pieces and parts of two or more other styles. Why not just enter category 23? Because the highest placing entry in this category under 6% ABV will be invited to Depot Street to assist head brewer Michael in the brewing of a commercial batch of this beer. All entries will be judged by at least one qualified BJCP judge and we strive to give you the best feedback that we can. Registration is now open for entries, judges, and stewards. ONLINE REGISTRATION ONLY to save trees. Full details are at http://www.franklinbrew.org/franklinstein. Steve Jones Competition organizer Return to table of contents
