Or maybe it is:

So I'm completely new to the homebrew process but I don't have a normal question. I'm middle of my first homebrew ... 3 days in fact, about to transfer to secondary. The question I have is that I have plans to improve my next batch with a fermentation chiller(son of a fermentor design) and a 10 gallon mash tun(made from a 10 gallon round cooler). I have a standard kit, fermentation bucket(6.8gallon) carboy (5 gallon) thermometer, tubing, disinfectant, bottles, caps etc.... everything one would expect to come with a standard starter kit... the question I have is, what am I missing? thanks for the answers

First off.. Leave the batch thats going now for a couple of weeks before transfering. Now onto your ?? I dont see a kettle big enough for all wort boil, or a wort chiller of some sort...
Cheers

Jaybird, good job stating the obvious... I wouldn't say anything but this but you are treating me like a complete moron not even reading my post. If you have something to say after reading, go ahead. yes I know the primary should go for a couple weeks before transferring... yes I know it's an extraneous step, but goddamit I have the equipment for it and so I'm going to do it. I also know for another 100 dollars I can have at least a semi-effective tun and a fermentation cooler allowing me to do at least some all grain brews. And I will try them all. Will some be skunk? yes. will I still drink them. hell yeah. I do what I do... but then again I'm tired of feeding the troll

What are you trying to accomplish? Why the extra steps and extra gear? Can you clarify your question? What types of beer you trying to brew?

thank you kapbrew, I'm not trying to do anything extra. is a fermentation cooler extra? I live in texas. Is a mash tun extra? I wasnt to do all grain brewing. What I want to know what other equipment, if any do I need? I have the basic kit as mentioned before.
Beyond that, do you see anything I need. lurk mor is a viable option. I'll figure it out on my own

it looks like you already have. If you want clear answers then ask clear questions and don't jump down the throats of those people who have taken the time to offer help. I think your attitude stinks. Go read some more, then if you have a real question, come back and grovel your apologies if you want any more help.

IMHO

Jay stated what you asked and then you get mad at him ..lol. You should try to make your question more precise, if you don't want him to state the obvious.

Your missing what you have exactly. so people will know what you have... jay stated what he thought you would need, from your broken list and then you get mad at him....wow
