We will probably be buying crayolas for the Department of Education. We certainly won't be getting a refund.

Well, I made a very significant interest free loan to the feds and state of Kalifornia. I plan to get a grain crusher and SWMBO has plans for the other 7K.
Time for a new tax man!

Now I know times are not easy, but a 10 gallon Rubbermaid cooler with a bazooka braid and ball valve is not THAT expensive.

I ended up with a HUGE refund this year and have subsequently adjusted my W4 to bring my deductions down for this year...BUT with the money, was able to pay off SWMBO's car and pay off one of two credit cards....looking at debt free in about 10 months now.

I used my bonus check from work to get my brewing stuff

36 Qt. Bayou Classic pot
2x 55# bags of Maris Otter
1x 50# bag of 2-row
15 packs of different dry yeasts
2 pounds of hops
a couple pounds here and there of specialty grains
updated HBT membership

I should be good to go for about a year
