Default My gift cert to homebrewmart.com

So my dad went to glorious ol' Google and got me a $30 cert to homebrewmart.com. Been perusing the site for 2-3 days now, and thought about this bad boy(s):

http://homebrew-supplies.homebrewmar...t=products.asp

Worth the $ since I'm looking to get into AG, or just blow it all on partial mash ingredients for now?

I'd go for the partial mash ingredients, because your link pops up everything from a beer gun connection kit to a 20 gallon stainless brew pot.

Personaly, I have found its more fun and exciteing if you build everything from scratch.
Buying kits are great for the few that maybe doesnt have time or the tools to get some of the things done. Such as maybe sweating copper for a manifold...but usally there is allways more than one way to do something such as a getting a mesh toilet hose and useing that as a manifold instead. Some things may be a little cheaper, Other a little more spendy.

I am rather a cheap bastard so seeing a $100.00 bill disapear has to be a really good freakin investment. I work hard for my $$$ and dont want to see any penny waisted.

Just my thoughts on it...In the long run you might save $50 bucks...but you are able to custumise and know your system inside and out..and to me being able to have things the way i want it, makes it worth the extra cash.

Just something to think about.......

That kit isn't bad but personally I wouldn't need the hot liquor tank as I think batch sparging is a little better, especially if you are just starting out in AG.
