C#: WriteByte New Line ???

I'm writing bytes to a text file and currently experiencing continuous lines. I've searched the Internet and MSDN and cannot find a method that works correctly.....

Q. How can I write each byte on a new line ???

Current Code:
fs = new FileStream("SyslogTest.txt", FileMode.Append, FileAccess.Write, FileShare.Read);
foreach (byte bNext in sendBytes)
{
fs.WriteByte(bNext);
}
fs.Close();


Alternate Code:
fs = new FileStream("SyslogTest.txt", FileMode.Append, FileAccess.Write, FileShare.Read);
for(int i = 0; i < str.Length; i++)
{
fs.WriteByte(sendBytes[i]);            
}
fs.Close();

Do this:

  foreach (byte bNext in sendBytes)
  {
    fs.WriteByte(bNext);
    fs.WriteByte(Convert.ToByte('\r'));
    fs.WriteByte(Convert.ToByte('\n'));
  }

Or even better, this:

  byte[] newLine = System.Text.ASCIIEncoding.ASCII.GetBytes(Environment.NewLine);
  foreach (byte bNext in sendBytes)
  {
    fs.WriteByte(bNext);
    fs.Write(newLine, 0, newLine.Length);
  }

Well, both examples break the entire byte into individual characters and writes each on a new line like so:

T
h
i
s

a

s
e
n
t
e
n
c
e

My goal is to provide the following results:

How do you know when the lines end?  If you can figure that out, just use the code already given to add the CRLF pair to the ends of the lines instead of after each character.

If each 'sendbytes' is a line, just output the CRLF after outputting all the bytes.

  byte[] newLine = System.Text.ASCIIEncoding.ASCII.GetBytes(Environment.NewLine);
  foreach (byte bNext in sendBytes)
  {
    fs.WriteByte(bNext);
  }
  fs.Write(newLine, 0, newLine.Length);

Probably should have included this in my initial question. This is the sendBytes 'Byte'

Byte[] sendBytes = Encoding.ASCII.GetBytes(machineName + str);

Okay, do this:

  byte[] newLine = System.Text.ASCIIEncoding.ASCII.GetBytes(Environment.NewLine);

  fs = new FileStream("SyslogTest.txt", FileMode.Append, FileAccess.Write, FileShare.Read);
  using(fs)
  {
    Byte[] sendBytes = Encoding.ASCII.GetBytes(machineName + str);
    fs.Write(sendBytes, 0, sendBytes.Length);
    fs.Write(newLine, 0, newLine.Length);
  }
