$1k windfall what should I blow it on?
I've got a $1k windfall (bonus at work) and saving it is out of the question given inflation and the general economic situation, I think it makes more sense to spend it now.

I was thinking of a fermenator.

Or perhaps an all grain set-up.

All grain setup + carboys + bulk grain + Kegs + Keezer

I'll go for AG setup.

I'm not completely sure what I need exactly, because of the variation in setus. i.e. I see on some sites, rubbermaid coolers used as both HLT and MLT. I guess the minimum I would need is two rubbermaids and a SS kettle for heating the water, and for the boil, right? Some people go with two SS and a rubbermaid, etc?

You gotta go AG. it:rockin:

If you can DIY you can do iot for low$.
Threat SWMBO and still have lots hor hops and grain.

If you don't already have it, fermentation temperature control would be at the top of my list - craigslist freezer and a digital temp. controller. You'll have plenty $$$ left over for other things as well...

Huge keezer and a much larger batch size setup. Hey, I'm actually working on doing just that, so to make things easier, just donate it to me and I'll send some beer as a toll each time I brew. ;)
