I got four more of the books in the Classic Beer Styles series. I probably won't read much of them, but I 'need' to fill out the collection.
The mother-friend-in-law got me an out of print book on the history of St Louis Brewing called St Louis Brews 1809-2009
. Pretty neat! She also got me a culinary torch, which will probably only be used for flaming the lips of bottles.
I also bought myself Stan's new book and a new 30mm lens for my camera - you know, for taking pictures of the homebrew!
I guess it's safe to say I have a LOT of reading to do!
