I've been doing mini mash's for just about a year now (did my first brew last October) and am getting ready to jump into the All Grain sandbox. I've been pricing the cooler kits, parts, preassembled and individually and finally found a good deal at hombrewing.org. I bought my kettle from him back in the beginning, and he had the lowest price on the kettle, as well as the preassembled All Grain cooler kit. So I am getting that, as well as a barley crusher and probably a sparge arm, but I'm going to try some batch sparging, as well to figure out what works.
So, I'm posing to ask, what else is there that I might possible need? I have the normal stuff, hydrometer, thermometer, kettle, etc. Anything I'm missing? I don't want to get to that first AG brew day, already a little frazled, and realize, "Crap, I forgot XYZ!!!", so help me out if you can.
Sorry for the long post.
