My boss handed me a $25 Gift card to Borders so it was a no brainer.

Within 10 minutes, I had the $25 spent and got free shipping.

These are officially my first brewing X-mas presents:

I'll tell you in a week since no one seems willing to give me anything early
I think I am just getting some brewing books and I'll probably get a gift certificate to somewhere so I can buy some perlicks.

I am 99.9% certain Santa's elves are making me a Shirron. I just haven't received it yet.

I've asked Santa for an electric chalkboard to put above my kegerator. But then, I asked for that for my birthday three weeks ago and didn't get it then, either......

I've asked mrs. santa for some Edmond Fitzgerald. I don't think I'll get anything brewing related because I'm concentrating all efforts on completing the basement. So, most likely, I'll get gift cards from Home Depot and Menards

So far Santa (me) has brought the Barley Crusher and money for keggle. From others I've received ingredients and an IC. I will probably get some gift cards for brew supply stores. I want the new Palmer/Jamil book as well so hopefully that'll make its way under the tree...

Looks like I'll be getting a food saver, maybe an oxygen pump, and Brewing Classic Styles. I guess there's an outside chance I'll get those weird/funky Sam Adams glasses, but I was only half serious when I mentioned them. Still pretty exciting.

I got a refractometer and the ultimate "I don't know what in the world to get you from that store so here's some money" gift.

The refractometer is totally awesome! I now know the SG of damn near everything in my house.

And, you'll love "Radical Brewing." It's a great book, and Randy is a great guy.
