Default Tax refund brewery expansions!

Well here we are at February 2nd, and taxes are starting to slowly drop into peoples accounts or get sent to mailboxes near you, so what are your plans to expand your home brewing operation?

With my decided upon portion of the tax return, I purchased a brewers best wort chiller, a 6 gallon better bottle, another fermenting bucket, an Arrogant Bastard clone kit, a Bavarian Hefeweizen kit, and some other assorted small things like airlocks, fittings, hydrometer to replace my broken one, ETC.

Now, I should be able to get a decent pipeline going and never have to worry about running out of beer again, YAY.

I plan to get ball valves for all my kettles, get my keggle and 15 gallon co0oer up and running, and hopefully get everything I need to start kegging.

Yes, this is a very exciting tax return indeed!

I own my own business. I'll just waddle in my own misery, read this thread, and pretend like I get a refund.

Yeah, this is one of the few times I can be happy that I didn't break the poverty line.

I had planned on a few more corney kegs, a chest freezer with temp controller and maybe a grain mill.

Instead I payed off some credit card debt.

The joy is underwhelming.

I haven't even gotten all my tax statements yet. Gunna fix up the kitchen,maybe a new stove. Need a new water heater too,& the car needs a lil work. Might get a bottle washer & some ingredients for a few beers. Got just about everything I need for brewing.

There are a million things I'd like you get, and my wife wants a piece of the check too. Sadly most of its probably going into savings, and I'll probably get 100$ to finish of my keezer.

It sure is nice of you all to have extra taken out of your paycheck as an interest free loan to the government so you can get it back to buy something. I'd rather save that in my own account and buy things when I want, not just in "tax season".
