Default The Brewers Christmas Wish List

My wife asked me what I wanted for christmas...immediately brewing tools/supplies came to mind. While numero uno on the list is a stainless steel conical fermenter or a stainless steel mash/lauter tun, it's probably a tad over our budget.

I've got the basics for extract brewing, but would like to move up to all grain. So what would your christmas list be for brewing tools/supplies be for items under $200, and (if possible) what stores would you recommend getting them from at the best price?

What do you have already?

I went to my lhbs and was talking with them about gift ideas. I came up with an idea that they adopted. A gift registry. Works just like a wedding or baby registry. Works great for secret santa and polyana's at work.

I just asked for a bulk bags of 2-row, munich and vienna. I hope I get one. I would go to austinhomebrew if I was buying, but the gift giver will likely go to the LHBS.

If you are going all grain you need a brew pot to do full boils and a mash tun probably just get a cooler from home depot and do this http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f51/chea...version-23008/ to it

Probably buying myself (with x-mas money) a 30- or 40-plate chiller from KegCowboy when he gets them back in stock in a couple weeks. Pretty sure he said the prices are going to be about the same as they were before, meaning a bit more than $70 for a 30-plate money and around $90 for the 40-plate. Already have a pump to use it most effectively.

all that sounds nice but for me the biggest expense was getting a big pot for my boils.. I got http://www.globalindustrial.com/p/fo...campaignId=T9I

then next is an immersion chiller and the bits to convert an ice chest to a MLT.

a digital thermometer is good too.. you can get those from Target for under $20.

I lucked out and already had a 8 gallon stainless pot

I asked for a Vinator and bottle tree... As from everything I've read once people have them they wish they had gotten them along time ago... & it's under $50

I got a simple keg system with some money last year. Probably one of the best investments I could make for homebrew. No more bottles or waiting on bottle conditioning, etc.
