I have $2000 set aside to jump into all grain brewing. So far, I have a beer fridge with two taps, carboys (primary's and secondarys), cheap brew kettle, gizmos and gadgets. What would you buy with 2k for a jump into all grain brewing? I would like to invest in making brew day itself easiest (such as pumps etc). Without sacrifice to great tasting beer.

Should I save more for an electric setup?

I could build a few setups with 2k. Electric setups. If you don't mind some DIY, you've got way more money than you need.

I would say build your own single tier, electric, natural gas, or propane depends on you and preference. Fermentation chamber. Add more kegs for storage. Get more taps. Another beer fridge.

Start at the beginning of your process and add the pieces that will help and assist you in making better more consistent beer.

Good luck, this thread should explode with more ideas than you know what to do with and more money than you have or are willing to spend.

2k is a lot more then you would need. I would build a three tier electric brewing system. Spend 500 and then go on a cruise with the rest

A good 700 will get you damn near anything and everything you should need for a good setup

I would build an electric setup and surf CL for a lager fridge. Since I already have those things, I guess I would pay down my second mortgage. Priorities.

Man...2G's would be killer....electric setup with all sorts of gizmos. I'd get a few different kettle sizes for different batch sizes too. Also a few more taps...
