Default I have $250 GC at amazon.com. what can i get?

I currently do (mostly) all grain batches with a 5 gallon cooler, keggle, and turkey fryer. I recently got a CFC, so i would like to get a pump at some point. I am also kegging using a converted sanyo. I dont see a pump on amazon that i can get, any other suggestions on upgrades?

Buy a nice thermometer? How about a magnetic drive pump (read: seal-less and leak-less) like this one:

http://www.amazon.com/Little-Giant-2-MD-LPM-230V/dp/B000OLCIBE/ref=sr_1_18/105-4079867-9777206?ie=UTF8&s=home-garden&qid=1184710792&sr=1-18

That pump's a beast! I know people who've had experience with them, and the March pump looks like it's cousin.

Maybe a grain mill? Don't know if these are any good, but they claim to be adjustable...

Whatever else you end up getting you could always tack on a carboy or two if you've got money left over and want to increase the number of batches you can have at a time. They run a bit more on amazon than other places, but if you've already got the money there it'll work.

Thanks for the ideas. I didnt realize amazon had pumps that i could use. Radical, the one you posted is a 230V, will that work in a standard outlet? or would I need to get this one?

My bad! Check out this one, no pics but it's the same model at 115V.

http://www.amazon.com/Little-Giant-Magnetic-Drive-580002/dp/B000OLAHEO/ref=sr_1_11/103-0701687-9521443?ie=UTF8&s=home-garden&qid=1184784780&sr=1-11

The one you linked will work just fine, as you can use a ball valve to dial back the power, but really would be overkill for our purposes. The 2-MD model will do you just fine .

Also, you could get an Erlenmeyer flask for starters. They're a tad more expensive there (you have to search for one with a decent price) but if you already have the money...

Send it to me. This is exaclty what I need to free up an entire brewery worth of equipment that is held up by Customs

I bought all of my stuff on Amazon Nigeria and since my father was the Minster of Fermentation, we cannot legally export this to the states (conflict of interest).

We need two hundred fifty (250,00) US dollars to provide to the Charge de Amazon Domestic Minister to release the goods. You may keep all of the brewery items as compensation as all I will need is the packet of Nottingham (yeast) with which we smuggled my dehydrated parents and my future wife.
