Buying your own christmas gifts? Doesn't that defeat the purpose? Would be nice though. Me and the wife decided instead of buying each other gifts, we just bought a wii fit. Same sort of thing I guess.

What I had on my xmas list.
Better Bottles
2 Perlicks
secondary regulator
2 shanks and nuts
Trappists and Belgians from Jungle Jims
We shall see what the day brings!
I'm going to guess none of the above
Tap Room Hobo

I should have stuck to four fingers in Vegas.

A refractometer and a subscription to BYO.

I told my wife that I wanted a barley crusher but she said she didn't know what that was so I probably won't be getting that.

Well, mine has been sitting in the living room for the past couple of days. SWMBO asked me to send her an email with my list. I sent her several links to Austin Homebrew. Better Bottles, bench capper, bottle tree, etc. The package came in on tuesday and there it sits still...
