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 Financial Projection as of 03 December 2012 *** Condition: Cautiously Optimistic *** 501(c)3 status rescinded. Refiled 1023 for retroactive status 25 June 2012. Did not hear back within 90 days; therefor, must assume that there are issues and our case must be assigned to an agent. IRS is currently assigning applications received in February 2012. Ours was received in June. We will not have our status reinstated for the 2012 tax year. To current financials, HBD is officially bankrupt in May. Due to recent political developments, HBD.org will likely have to be dissolved per the bylaws once funding runs out. Projected 2012 Budget $3191.79 Expended against projection $3137.96 Unplanned expenditures $ 331.88 Projected Excess/(Shortfall) $1282.62 As always, donors and donations are publicly acknowledged and accounted for on the HBD web page.

Date: Wed, 16 Jan 2013 06:04:50 -0500 From: jeff <climbzen at pa.net> Subject: brett starter i'm getting ready to make my first ever brett beer. it will be a hoppy pale ale brewed with 100% brett c. i had planned on brewing this coming sunday so i started my starter this past saturday as i had heard chad (no idea how to spell his last name) from crooked stave say to make brett starters one week in advance in an interview. anyway plans changed and i won't be brewing till the following weekend. i do believe i had heard (probably in the same interview) that you can let a brett starter go indefinitely at room temp. this if i recall was for storage of the yeast not for starters. anyway does anyone know if i just let this starter go will it be fine to use after sitting for two weeks or should i add some more wort to it to keep it chugging. i had also thought this might be a good time to step it up since the starter is a typical sized starter for ales (one white lab vile in 1.75L of 1.040 wort) and i know for 100% brett beers it should be closer to a lager starter. anyone know how well brett will flocculate out if i crash this starter in the fridge so that i can decant the beer and add fresh wort. peace jeff Return to table of contents
