I got a five gallon carboy, which means (trumpets blaring) two-stage fermentation! I also got an apron that says "Master Brewer" on it, a head-ups display thermometer, and a bunch of cool non-brewing stuff like an mp3 player. How about you guys?

I didn't even get any coal. But, the worst part of the driveway got graded last Friday.

I got 30 EZ cap bottles from my brother-in-law who recently started kegging, and $100 from SWMBO for the LHBS.

A late train, a day spent in a hotel room 300 miles away from home, and two non-understanding children.

Christmas is tomorrow!

<edit> I do know I'm getting an 11 gallon pot.
I drive a train

SWMBO gave me a card with a picture of this in it.

It (the big one on the right) should be here by the time I get back from my next business trip. Whoo hooo!

Got a Casio Exilim EX-Z1000 digital camera (I LOVE my photography and photoshoppage), wanted a 5 UK gallon Better Bottle fermenter for secondary fermentation (using my bottling buckets at the mo, meaning i have to prime each bottle individually) but unfortunately I didn't get it, but I acquired £130 (not sure what that is in dollars) but I'm sure it is enough for me to finally move to AG

Also got a bottle of this Innis & Gunn IPA, and according to the box there are only 63,000 in existence. Not sure whether to open it or keep it safe for the next 30 years... although that might be a bit extreme eh?
Next Up: More Strawberry Wine!
Primary: Strawberry Wine
Mini Primary: Empty
Secondary: IPA
Bottled: Cheesefood's Caramel Cream Ale Almost gone :( t'were delicious!
Mysteriously Disappeared: Some Random Dark Ale - Cooper's Bavarian Lager - Mexican Cerveza - Black Sheep Export Bitter - Edwort's Apfelwein
