If you don't already have it, fermentation temp control. One of the most important brew improvements you'll ever make.

Temp control gets my vote.

This, hands down. JohnsonA419 for under $60 at pexsupply.com and a $20-$50 fridge from CL and your beer goes to the next level!

Wait. You're not talking about beer, right?
You're talking about beer. That could have been a whole lot more fun.

Without a chest freezer or some sort of chiller/heater box temp control wouldn't do much.

An oxygenation setup is a good thing to have.

$60? Psh too rich for my blood. Ebay aquarium digital temp controller (STC-1000) for under $30.

Yep, but you need (should have) a relay on the compressor side.

+1 to fermentation temperature control. After that, a stirplate and bigass erlenmyer. After that, oxygen system.

Brewers make wort, yeast make beer. Treat your yeast well before you buy anything for the brewer.

- Get 100 spicy chicken sandwiches from Carl's Jr. (Or Hardees). Of course, taxes might bring this a bit over the budget.
- 5 Lapdances
- Break it up into 100 individual dollar bills and roll around naked in bed tonight with them before the world ends (Or did it already?)
