What equipment are you buying with tax return?
 
Just wondering what everyone will be doing with their return in regards to brewing? I am considering getting a beer gun and bottle capper as well as a few little things.

I will be buying nothing with my tax refund as I should not be getting one. If everything goes as planned, I should owe $1 in taxes. I hate giving the government an interest free loan of my money by overpaying my taxes throughout the year.

Wow that's cool how did you accomplish that feat?

Years of practice. My wife is technically self employed, but earns a fixed salary. We have to make a quarterly tax payment so I basically know my tax liability every 3 months. That does make it easier to estimate and not over pay.

Oh I see that is pretty cool. Well any upcoming plans?

Eventually some sort of fermentation control is on the agenda, but I don't know of that will be a fridge/freezer or some sort of larger chamber. That probably won't happen until later in the spring/summer as right now it is easy to ferment in my basement and cold crash in the garage here in the Chicago area.

Oh nice I can't wait till I can finally do some sort of fridge ferm chamber. I currently use a cool brewing fermentation chamber that has been working quite well. I was fermenting at 58 and no on lagering at around 48-50 using only frozen two liters!

Trying to make the jump to all-grain.

Got a 44qt kettle, BIAB bag, mash paddle, and grain mill.

Thinking of investing in a pH meter. Just seems much easier than the strips I've been using, and more accurate.

Zeroing out my CC debt and then buying the stuff for a Son Of Fermentation Chamber for my place, and for a wooden brew stand for the AG setup my friend and I are setting up at his. Not sure which I'm the most excited for.
