$100 Home Depot gift card! It's burning a hole in my pocket!! What should I buy??
 
Alright, I've got almost everything short of a brewstand. I have a kegerator, multiple primaries/secondaries, a stir plate, multiple kettles, a banjo burner, etc...

I'm not sure what to buy. I'm thinking about putting this money towards a mini fridge that I can lager in.

Any suggestions?

steel tubing for the brewstand you're missing.

Buy PVC and build a bottle tree. If you haven't gone AG, I'd buy a cooler, fittings for the cooler to convert to mash tun (along with SS braid etc.) and whatever else you need (e.g. pvc or copper for a manifold).

Yeah that. Or build a kick-ass wort chiller. The fridge is a good idea.

I just built a 2 tier "brew cart" for about $100 in materials from lowes. Just a bunch of angle iron, bolts, and casters. But it came out nice.

Well, I am already AG. I don't really bottle too much since I've gotten the kegerator and I already have a wort chiller. I just bought a banjo burner with the stand and I don't really have the space for a brew stand right now, so I don't know what to effin buy!

power tools

I wouldn't buy steel from home depot. much cheaper to get it from a scrap yard. from what i understand you pay by the pound at a scrap yard.

I second buying tools. projects get much cheaper when you already have the equipment needed to build them.

Chest freezer for lagering. More cost-effective, you get more cubic feet per dollar spent (even factoring in the need for an external temp controller).

SWMBO says mine's going for a glass door for the fireplace...;)
