Default What did you ask Santa for?

Sorry if we already have a thread on this, I cannot find it for the life of me. I'll merge the thread if someone finds it.

I think I might be getting this:



I've wanted to move away from glass carboys for a while now, so I thought I'd test one of these out. With the spigot, it opens lots of options as far as racking or bottling.

This is all I asked for as far as brewing equipment, so hopefully Santa listened.

I asked for "The Beer Gun" and I already received it so I could get my pumpkin ale bottled. I love that thing!
I also asked for ingredients for a batch of wine. I've always wanted to try it so I thought I'd ask for a kit. We will see if Santa thinks I was good this year.

I asked for a really cheap set of PC speakers as headphones alone doesnt cut it.

I wanted to start kegging and have been accumulating my equipment (christmas gifts) for about a month now. I borrowed a bottle, regulator, shank and faucet from a buddies kegerator and bought another shank, faucet, ball lock connectors and associated lines.

I also recently received a sanyo 4912 and should be getting my tap tower soon.

Christmas is coming early this year as the best present (new baby) is due two days later.

I basically just asked for as many glass carboys of any size as she is willing to get me. All I have so far is a single six gallon carboy and my bottling bucket, which is limiting production quite a bit. Hopefully I'll get enough to have 2-3 batches fermenting at once.

I don't really need anything else right now. My setup is pretty nice, although basic.

I asked for this for my new Sabco. Which means my old one will be a perfect pre-chiller now.

I asked for a wort chiller, and a bottle washer/tree. I don't think I'm getting any brewing equipment, though- he's afraid to "feed the addiction". He does, however, love to drink my beer.....
