We don't usually do a lot of gifts, especially for the grown ups, but I scored a replacement thermometer, Designing Great Beers, and a BYO subscription.

Glad to see everyone here had a nice Christmas. I ended up getting a 25 ft 3/8 ID immersion chiller from SWMBO and a new dual guage, dual output regulator. The one I was using had a bad diaphragm, so I was basically using the Force in determining how much pressure I was using.

Installed the new regulator yesterday, bled off the excess pressure and pulled off a pint at 11psi. I must have been upwards of 16-20psi using "the force" because it is a trickle now compared to how it was before.

Merry Christmas everyone!

I got a 25' 3/8" copper immersion chiller for my 5 gallon batches from my parents, a kit from Northern Brewer for an English Pale Ale from my brother & sister in-law, and "The Naked Pint" by Perozzi and Beaune. It was a great day! The book has been a nice read so far, and I can't wait to get back home and brew with my new immersion chiller!
