Hey guys I'm switching from extract to all grain. I have the essentials (kettle, mash tun, wort cooler, etc...) are there any small items that you guys wouldn't do without?

I found out during my first all grain batch (after many extracts) that you need another kettle. If you only have one, you need another. You have to have a pot of hot water to sparge with, so now you have to have another pot for your first runnings!

Lots of buckets are good to have around.

One of these if you are using a cooler for a MTL, and it has a timer too. And as I found out today, a spare hydrometer. Thankfully, I had a spare.

I have a 4 quart hard plastic measuring vessel that I picked up at a commercial food service supply place for like 12 bucks. It's marked in 1qt increments. Makes measuring sparge water as well as measuring collected wort really easy.

A mill and plenty of malt to put through it. I second the second pot. It helps speed up the boil when making bigger beers.
