I was circling some things in a brew catalog to drop some hints for the wife and other interested parties.

1. A convoluted counterflow chiller. I thought hard about a plate chiller, but I'm just not comfortable with the inability to really clean them.
2. Precise pocket scale. Measures to 0.1 grams up to 22 oz. Nice for doing spice additions.
3. Better hydrometer, something with more precision. A refractometer would be nice too.
4. Coolview Cooler Thermometer. Made for Igloo and Rubbermaid coolers with a 100 to 200 F range. Perfect for the mash tun.

What's on your list?

A fermentation cooler. This one looks like a good bet, as I live in a very small apartment, so I need something that doesn't take up a lot of space when I'm not using it.

A port to be drilled into my BK so I can install my valve. A pump to make sparging easier. More kegs. A larger or backup CO2 tank. More time to brew...
