Every one says I am hard to shop for so I made a Christmas List for BMW to pick and choose from. I was spoiled between SWMBO and the family.

3 Better bottles
3 AG kits
1 Stout faucet
2 Year sub to BYO

When I opened the stout faucet SWMBO said I looked like Ralphie getting his red ryder BB gun.
Mom asked "You really like it?"
Me "Hell yes"
Mom "I don't even know what the hell it is"

So as I am walking out the door this morning I think to my self:
"self, going to work on Monday is like knowing you're going to get kicked in the nuts. You just don't know when or by who"

Sweet on the stout faucet. I was surprised how much I loved mine when I got it. It is just a cool piece of equipment.

I got the same reaction when I opened my March Pump. Blank stares all around.

"Well, what does it do?"

"Makes me able to brew 10 gallon batches."

"Ok. I guess that's good."

I nixed 'anything beer' because I need to clear stuff out. So The Lady got me a kitchenaid stand mixer! It's red! (and goes with my stapler!)

I baked all day while drinking homebrew (honey blonde.) I made Mexican chocolate cookies, lemon-ginger pinwheels, toasted coconut marshmallows, almond crust lemon curd tart, and banana bread. Baked a ham too. Now it's food coma time while waiting for her parents to get in from Cali.

SWMBO got me a refractometer, a pound of amarillo pellets, and a recipe kit from AHS. Mom dropped the ball and didn't get me anything brewing related, but I might try and get a couple of ball valves from bargain fittings from her yet. Grandma gave me some $ and that is going towards downloading beersmith. Not too shabby!

8 gallon brew pot, bottle tree, and a case of bottles.

I feel bad my husband actually paid for bottles. I think he was grossed out with my habit of stopping at a local grocery store and paying the 10cent bottle deposit to get bottles from them. Ah well. Good clean bottles!
