Default What are you getting for Christmas (Beer related)

My wife and I tend to shop for ourselves for Christmas. It started almost as a joke years ago and now it is just what we do. I did my shopping this week.

(I got exactly what I wanted!! Yay!)

Bayou Classic SP10
Brew Like a Monk
1 55 # domestic 2 - row
1 55# Belgian Pils

plus to round it out I went to the beer store and bought the following:

6 each
Chimay Red
Chimay Blue
Chimay Triple
SN Celebration
Duvel Golden
Corsendonk Abbey Brown

This is the first commercial beer I have purchased in 6 months.

Buying your own christmas gifts? Doesn't that defeat the purpose? Would be nice though. Me and the wife decided instead of buying each other gifts, we just bought a wii fit. Same sort of thing I guess.

ANYWAY
What I had on my xmas list.
Better Bottles
2 Perlicks
secondary regulator
2 shanks and nuts
Trappists and Belgians from Jungle Jims
misc.
We shall see what the day brings!
I'm going to guess none of the above

Wife got me a 10 gallon rubbermaid cooler which I'm sure you know what I will be using for , along with a beer related gift which is still undisclosed.

A refractometer and a subscription to BYO.

I told my wife that I wanted a barley crusher but she said she didn't know what that was so I probably won't be getting that.

Well, mine has been sitting in the living room for the past couple of days. SWMBO asked me to send her an email with my list. I sent her several links to Austin Homebrew. Better Bottles, bench capper, bottle tree, etc. The package came in on tuesday and there it sits still...
