I got a 10 liter pot from my mom. I already have a 5 liter pot, so I'll start doing split boils soon. I also got some money, so I'll probably buy some other brewing gear next week.

Won't find out until around 7 tonight when we to to my parents. Swmbo and I didn't buy for each other cause were going to build a bar instead. So I guess I got $2-300 for a bar build this morning by not opening any presents:)

That's a terrible thing to say about your mom.:D

SWMBO told me I could get all the stuff I needed to upgrade by beer fridge from 1 tap to 3(or 4) taps. :ban:
Your wife is aware that to go from 1 tap to 3-4, you need a monster mill right? :D

Very cool glasses. I got a set of 4 pint glasses a heavy glass pitcher with a generic logo for my Furnace Room Brewery last year along with a tap happen with the same.

Founders Breakfast Stout, Olde Mecklenburg Yule Bock, and a cash wad going straight into some combination of: decent thermometer, refractometer, grain crusher, maybe a turkey fryer, and equipment for converting my chest freezer into a keezer! Awesome.

No equipment per se, but my wife gave me a hand written gift certificate to be used at the beer store. The certificate amount was for infinity. :)

Designing Great Beers and a $50 gift certificate to my favorite beer store (Brewmasters warehouse, of course) from the wife.

three perlicks, shanks and mounting hardware to convert my fridge to a kegerator from the parents.

Now, the only hard thing to figure out is do i go for ingredients with my certificate or do i upgrade the brewing hardware. Towards a mill perhaps? I've got a good all-grain setup going, so i don't know what to do with it exactly. Maybe a march pump for turning my IC into a whirlpool IC?

I got carhartt bib duck overalls for brewing in. I need to exchange them for a bigger size tomorrow morning but eventually they will get my name and "brewmaster" either embriodered or on a patch.

Also, $50 to BMW.

I'm going to be a beer judge! (I hope.) SWMBO enrolled me in an exam. It's a bit of a road trip because there aren't any exams around my area so I'll be travelling to another province in June.

I got an Arduino from my parents to build my electric brew rig, and a selection of various fine beers from around the world from my son.

I happened to buy everything for the chilling system on my new rig yesterday (minus a spare march pump I had laying around), but that wasn't actually a Christmas present.

No actual brewing related presents, despite my dropping multiple hints about wanting a cold room. Go figure.

March Pump. 10g batches here I come!

Also, $100 to be spent at RebelBrewer.com - Mother's orders. Yes ma'am. Thinking Beer Gun and either bulk specialty grains or a couple more cornies.

My wife got me a digital scale, a 6 gal better bottle with stopper and another airlock, a Barley Crusher, and all the stuff needed to brew her favorite wheat beer. From my friend I got a new Perlick faucet (couldnt get me 2 as they only had one left at LHBS), he also got me a gift certificate there so I could get the other one. I asked my wife where she got the ingredient list for the wheat, she told me that she went through my brewlog and found the one I made for our halloween party, and bought the stuff from that! I am amazed she kept a smack pack of Wyeast 3068 hidden from me for a week, in my beer fridge, in plain sight next to the other yeast packs!!! I need to keep better inventory!
