I dislike S-04 but I do like WLp007.

+1.  I brewed the Surly Furious clone last year and used WLP007.  It was great.  I used the slurry for an Abrasive Ale clone, and that too was awesome.

I'll save the stir plate money for ingredients

I built both my stir plates for maybe a $5 investment because I didn't have any power switches sitting around.  I had everything else, so it was simple.

Old hard drive for magnets, computer fan, cigar box, old Nokia power adapter.

yeah, but back when I was paid by the hour I was worth ~ 70-80 bucks an hour, so 5 bucks in parts plus ~1-2 hours and we're talking serious money. ;D

I'll bet that would make your homebrew pretty expensive, too, if you counted the time at that rate. :o
