Ok, lt, you know how to make a liar out of me!

Thanks, again.

Ha! I thought that was from Minnesota! You can tell I'm not a beer drinker, although an ale with a grilled Brat is good once in a while - maybe twice a year.
I just wiki ed it and learned more, and about people not knowing about yeast until the late 1800's!
Thanks, lt.
