Default All grain necessities

Hey guys I'm switching from extract to all grain. I have the essentials (kettle, mash tun, wort cooler, etc...) are there any small items that you guys wouldn't do without?

I found out during my first all grain batch (after many extracts) that you need another kettle. If you only have one, you need another. You have to have a pot of hot water to sparge with, so now you have to have another pot for your first runnings!

Second pot and a good thermometer.

Lots of buckets are good to have around.

One of these if you are using a cooler for a MTL, and it has a timer too. And as I found out today, a spare hydrometer. Thankfully, I had a spare.

I have a 4 quart hard plastic measuring vessel that I picked up at a commercial food service supply place for like 12 bucks. It's marked in 1qt increments. Makes measuring sparge water as well as measuring collected wort really easy.

A mill and plenty of malt to put through it. I second the second pot. It helps speed up the boil when making bigger beers.
