Watcha get for Christmas?
« on: December 26, 2010, 09:20:32 AM »
So, anyone else get homebrewing stuff for Christmas? 

I got "Designing Great Beers" by Ray Daniels and a subscription to BYO. 

What did you get (things you bought yourself for Christmas are perfectly fine...)?

Randy Mosher's Radical Brewing from my son, who's becoming a new homebrewer in New Orleans.

I got "Principles of Brewing Science" by George Fix.  I will be reading this after I am finished with "Yeast: The Practical Guide to Beer Fermentation" by Chris White & Jamil Zainasheff   ;D

Nothing brewing related but Ms. Tubercle added a dulcimer to the musical instrument collection :)

My wife doesn't know it yet but I'm getting a new 20lb CO2 cylinder.  She gave me a remote read smoking thermometer and a Kindle.  Along with the parts bin rack I received it was a very good Christmas.

Supposed I'm getting a set of a large and then small bottle rack.  Supposed to hold up to 300 bottles.  Finally the beer is going to get out boxes sitting on the ground and get organized!
Homebrewing isn't my obsession, it's my life calling, there's a difference.

My wife claims she got a Blichmann Hop Rocket.  I thought I got that for me!

For some reason that just doesn't sound right.  :-\  :D

I got both "Designing Great Beers" by Ray Daniels and "Yeast: The Practical Guide to Beer Fermentation" by Chris White & Jamil Zainasheff.
Birthday's in January, and expect some sort of Stainless Steel equipment for that :-)

I got a poster, "Keep Calm and Have A Beer" and also two bronze plaque-type things, one that says "no drinking aboard (without the captain)" and "real ale served here."

Also, I left my wort chiller (a spiral-y stainless steel jobbie) -outside- and -full of water- so... I need to buy a new one, or figure out how to bend the SS back to the proper shape.
