You don't need to take readings or anything else at this point. Just let it sit there for at
least a week, preferably 2. At that point, all the froth will have dropped down and the beer
will start to ...

Posted in thread: Leading a meeting - print handouts or not? on 01-11-2016 at 04:05 AM
The point of sending out an agenda is so that people can come to the meeting prepared to
discuss those topics. If it's some that people would need as a reference to actually
