I just noticed you're in Chicago (I'm slow like that).
PM me if you like. I'm in Edgewater.
I have one of those faucet adapters somewhere that I no longer need, but it served me will in my old apartments. It's yours if you can use it (and if I can find it).
I've got extra rare earth magnets if you want to take a shot at building a stir plate. Again, they're yours if you want them. Google BYO's article on this, it's pretty easy. I can't bring myself to part with any of my cigar boxes, but you can get those pretty easy.
I've also got an excess number of glass 5 gallon carboys and a variety of other odds and ends. I'm sure we could work something out on these. I keep moving them around because I can't figure out what to do with them. But if your condo is tight on space you might not want my spare junk...
