Kegs. I would brew much less often if I had to bottle everything.

Malted Barley available for purchase in 50+lb bags. Without that I would probably be real effed. Everything else I think I could manage on my own.

Fermentation chamber/temp controller, autosiphon, and a good thermometer.

Thermoworks makes cheaper thermos than the pen, I have two and they're super for a fraction of the cost.

Stirplate / flask, O2 injector and lagering fridge. Without great fermentation, you can't make fantastic beer.

The one thing that I like aside from the normal stuff is my 84oz ice scoop.

Part of the idea of the thread was to get some good recommendations for people who are looking for that next great thing to buy. So with that said...

What model from thermowork do you recommend?
