It's about that time of year. Post what you want for christmas! And critique lists too.

I just bought a nice keggle but i find now that I am doing full boils, ice baths just aren't cutting it for me. I need a plate chiller and pump!

For chillers:
Blichmann Therminator - $199.00
Shirron Plate Chiller - $99.99
B3-23A 20 Plate Long Wort Chiller - $99.95

I'm looking at both price and quality. The Therminator is obviously the way to go here but for $200, its a bit pricey. Anyone have any suggestions on wort chillers that I did not list?
*edit* - Someone mentioned rebel brewer. Looks like the Chillhog 4000 - $119.95 is the way to go!

to use a wort chiller, you also should have a pump to run the wort through, right? So I was looking at this too (doesnt seem like theres anything else out there for what im looking for)

March 809HS-PL Pump - $139.95

Of course I will also need fittings and such for everything but if anyone has any suggestions on places to go for prices/quality, let me know.

POST YOUR OWN CHRISTMAS LISTS!!! What kind of gadgets will complete your setup? Anything you want to splurge on?

Yep, I'm working on one of these.

I'm making the jump to all grain, so I'm needing to improve my basic setup. My list includes:

Bayou Classic SQ14 propane burner
40+ quart stainless steel brewpot
10 gallon rectangular cooler
items needed for DIY conversion of said cooler

Wish List:

Barley Crusher w/15lb hopper
7 cuft chest freezer for fermenting/lagering
15gallon kettle (want to replace keggles as they're heavy and European (50L=13gal rather than 15.6gal)

I am going to shoot a little higher and ask Santa for a fully equipped brew shed with bar included.

All automated electric ten gallon size.

10 taps fed from a walk in cooler.

Temperature controlled fermentation for several lagers and ales at a time.

60 inch flat screen TV included, pool table and maybe even a hot tub.

I have a HERMS Coil coming from Stainless Brewing.

Thinking about asking for a Plate Chiller and selling my CFC cheap. The CFC works fine, but the PC is smaller and I can mount on my brew stand when it's time. Plus, I can sterilize in the oven, so that's nice.

I think I'm pretty well set up otherwise. Still a few odds and ends to do for the ERHERMS system, but I have most of the parts, and I don't think I could trust the SO to buy the right parts if I put it on a list...

Well, first I'm telling people not to buy me presents and instead contribute to the kickstarter, but what I really want is:

A new refractometer and finishing gravity hydrometer
A 3-tap tower for my keezer
A large vacuum sealer for hops and other stuff
A bigass plate chiller from Dudadiesel and a pump to run it

(All stuff I can use at home and then take over to the brewery)
