Building a Brew Room
What's the one piece of equipment you have in your brewing arsenal that if it broke today, you'd purchase a new one tomorrow?

Thermometer, mash tun, propane burner, scale.
Pretty much anything I don't have a backup for.

Other than airlocks and fermenting buckets, if it goes down it's getting replaced right away.
Can't brew without all of it.

Propane burner. At 40 dollars its a must have. Saves so much time on brewday although I still heat sparge water on the gas stove.

Scale,hydrometer,thermometer,Tubing for various tasks. Vinator,bottle tree. Fermenters go without saying.

Actually. Kegs. Best brewing investment I ever made.

My Immersion chiller broke after I left it outside in the winter. I replaced it with a CFC (which I keep inside...) and If it were to break I'd replace it immediately again.

Well, brewstand and kettles - although they are unlikely to "break." Something that "could" break, that I would replace instantly - immersion chiller. To be honest though - almost everything I have bought I consider "essential" and can't think of much that I would not replace.

Transfer pump without a second thought.
