Procedure trumps gadgets. I am an engineer and love gadgets, but procedure is where you make the best beer.

I'll go along with that after a point. I feel that having some correct and useful gadgets are important for success, but after that success is based on procedure.

Which ones, Martin?

I would think a good thermometer and pH meter, no doubt.

pH meter so low on my list that I haven't bought one and have zero plans on getting one. Accurate thermometer is a good thing to have. Don't need to be expensive either.

After fermentation temp control there are lots of small items that will help make better beer.  How about a jewelry scale to accurately weigh water salts.

Fermentation temp control for sure.
