---------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: Mon, 18 Oct 2010 15:07:49 +1100 From: "Williams, Rowan" <Rowan.Williams at ag.gov.au> Subject: re: Sulfur smell [SEC=PERSONAL] Personal Personal Thanks all for the comments. I have racked the beer into secondary and it seems to be ok. I will bottle some and keg the rest I want to see if the smell disappears in the bottle. I know the aroma will dissipate when I burp the keg.

Date: Mon, 18 Oct 2010 12:41:54 -0400 From: "Mike Patient" <mpatient at rta.biz> Subject: RE: Beer in the Bible While I was originally thinking, what is this spam, after reading it, in the least it is beer history. What I was wondering is if they even though of spirits and beer/wine to contain the same uplifting ingredient. They were probably considered two different things to do to your body. It probably wasn't until science and chemistry was taken into account that we realized they are the same thing, and equally dangerous. Their condemnation of spirits was falsely placed where it should have been on, indulgence. Ohh, the things we know now. Mike Return to table of contents
Date: Mon, 18 Oct 2010 14:08:14 -0400 From: "Lemcke Keith" <klemcke at siebelinstitute.com> Subject: Nottingham yeast We have received a few inquiries regarding Nottingham batch # 1080961099V exp. date: 12/2011 which have lead us to comments on homebrew forums regarding fermentation problems. While our tests on this batch of yeast have shown normal fermentation performance and many of the comments on forums show others having normal performance with this batch, unfortunately we also note with serious concern the comments of brewers who have reported poor performance. Accordingly we feel we should stop the sale of this particular batch of yeast, given the concerns of homebrewers, as we work to investigate further. We have asked distributors and homebrew retailers to return any yeast from this batch to us for replacement. If you have sachets from this batch of yeast please return them to us and we will replace them with a different batch. Please feel free to send the sachet(s) for replacement to: Lallemand Inc. Attn: Marie Coppet 6100 Royalmount Montreal, QC, Canada H4P 2R2 If you have any questions, please contact me at klemcke at lallemand.com. Thanks very much.
