So far:

Another Love controller and probe (for a dorm fridge-to-yeast freezer conversion)
Two stir plates from brewershardware.com
extra stir bars
new driving gloves
new Croquet set
Oktoberfest nutcracker, and a brewer German smoker
Stocking stuffers

Speculating for future:
Lab glassware
other yeast management stuff (here's to hoping)

Asked Santa for a refractometer and two perlick faucets. I guess we'll see if I've been good this year or not.

At this point, I don't have too many upgrades I can do that don't cost over $200, so I probably won't be getting anything.

Putting together a bulk grain and hops buy though for january/feb, so that can be a late bday present to myself. Right now we're up to about 20lbs of hops. Grain portion isn't too impressive yet at only 14 bags.

It's a really good year for brewing:

- 15 gallon MegaPot with ball valve and brewmometer
- 10 gallon beverage cooler and all the fittings I need to make a mash tun
- chest freezer and temperature controller

Yay! Going all-grain and starting to lager--that's one Merry Christmas!!

In other news, all of my relatives who drink beer are getting a six-pack of homebrew for Christmas. It includes two each of: Weizenbock, Scottish 80/-, and Double IPA. For the wimps, I'll sub the DIPA for some American Amber I have on hand.
"Das Wort hat, ... als ich Wittenbergisch Bier mit meinem Philipp und Amsdorf getrunken hab, also viel getan..." - Martin Luther

On Deck: American IPA, Märzen
Fermenting: None
In Bottles: Prime Abbey Singel, Vespers Abbey Dubbel, Terce Abbey Tripel, Compline Abbey Quad, Dragon's Tail Barleywine, Boyne Mead
