i got a few clothes, beer mug, Long Way Down, Long Way Around, and Race to Dakar DVD sets, and Robert Kiyosaki's cashflow board games. :rockin:

Dunno what the last one is but LWD and LWA are fantastic series, makes you ponder if you could do the same thing!

Got a bottle tree, and $150 from SWMBO's grandparents that I think I will use to buy a wort chiller and maybe a grain mill...
Just gotta figure out if doing my own grain will be worth it or not... I'd have to get a scales and a drill, not sure if I'll actually be saving money there for way too long.

charlie papazian's the complete joy of homebrewing.

Going to buy another book and a turkey frier. I am hoping to make the switch to AG brewing this year so further investments into that are likely to be made as well

For Christmas I got:
  • Keg disconnects
  • 6 Gal Better Bottle
  • 4x 525 Perlick Taps

Not necessarily a Christmas present, but today I bought:
  • 4 kegs from ChiCompany
  • Dual reg from Micromatic
  • Gas and beverage lines
  • Keg disconnects
  • Johnson Controller
  • Air distributors

So I just need to go buy the freezer, some wood, maybe a little laminate or travertine tile, and some wood stain and I should be good to go. I plan on doing a coffin box on top of the keezer with a bar-like top done on it.

I got three books: The Home Brewer's Answer Book, Clone Brews, and Homemade Root Beer, Soda & Pop (I think my wife and kids are trying to tell me something with this last one). I also got a bunch of cash from the family so I can start buying my all grain set up!:ban:

I got a Mr Beer kit. I'm kind of interested how this is going to turn out. I'll probably use some DME instead of the Booster, and maybe dry hop

We don't usually do a lot of gifts, especially for the grown ups, but I scored a replacement thermometer, Designing Great Beers, and a BYO subscription.

Glad to see everyone here had a nice Christmas. I ended up getting a 25 ft 3/8 ID immersion chiller from SWMBO and a new dual guage, dual output regulator. The one I was using had a bad diaphragm, so I was basically using the Force in determining how much pressure I was using.

Installed the new regulator yesterday, bled off the excess pressure and pulled off a pint at 11psi. I must have been upwards of 16-20psi using "the force" because it is a trickle now compared to how it was before.

Merry Christmas everyone!

I got a 25' 3/8" copper immersion chiller for my 5 gallon batches from my parents, a kit from Northern Brewer for an English Pale Ale from my brother & sister in-law, and "The Naked Pint" by Perozzi and Beaune. It was a great day! The book has been a nice read so far, and I can't wait to get back home and brew with my new immersion chiller!
