Let's say you received a bonus of $1,000 that was not expected and your swmbo was ok with you using it all for brewing stuff to upgrade brewing equipment. What would buy?

It depends on what you have. In my current situation I'd buy a chest freezer to turn into a keezer.

Faucets, gas hardware, and everything else I need to start kegging. I already have the chest freezer with a collar and the kegs, I just need the stuff to get beer out of the kegs and into my glass.

Depends on what you have. If I didn't have a structure with a pump....This one be #1 for equipment. Money spent for #1 product improvement, then ferment control.My pumps and structure are rate as a best purchase. My ferment freezer was the best investment in my beer. A stirplate, 5000ml flask, and fermentation control goes a long way. that could be had for max $200. I say 5000 because of a one size fits all. I'm now at the if I had 1K now, conical no doubt. My next piece of equipment.

What ever you get, you might want to throw a little her way just because she seems good enough to let you spend it the way you want.
