Not so much with equipment, but with batches. I seem to have hit a fever pitch lately, making batches every week, sometimes twice. I'd say I need help, but I have a fermenter free now!

Yup! One project after the next. First a kegging set up, Then a brew system size upgrade. I know right were you are coming from. I have one saving grace though. Seabee John forces me to brew every once in a while whether I like it or not, just to visit. I am not complaning though. I need to brew.

Yeah I was buying little things every few days for a while, with what amounted to $300 in "little things". Then I bought my freezer. Luckily my whole keezer project with the temp controller and everything will cost me about 230$ so thats not to bad I suppose. But people ask me how much it costs to brew your own beer and I tell them its real cheap. but the side crap you do will get expensive, and NO you cannot help the side stuff, IT MUST BE DONE.

LIKE gadgets? That's putting it mildly. Most of us LIKE gadgets like cats LIKE tuna fish.
