Got an nice NB gift cert (placed order this morning) and a new to me  40cu/ft oxygen tank.   Going to get that filled today and get a oxygen regulator and put my micron stone to work.  No more of those mini bottles for $7 a pop.

My wife got me a wort chiller (hallelujah! No more ice baths in my small sink) and a gift certificate to my LHBS. I was starting to get worried seh was getting sick of my new hobby but I say this shows her full support.  ;D ;D

Haven't broken it in yet. I am out of malt!

I plumb wore out my old Barley Crusher. What a fine service it gave me over the years. To replace it Moonbeam gave me this! I won't be motorizing it. I'll be using my trusty HoleShooter that I built three houses with. It has always worked just fine.

My inlaws gave me these .  I need to figure out how I'll use them since I use buckets.  It was a very thoughtful gift, and am grateful for such nice inlaws.

Wow, those are super neat! I've never seen anything like that before - I guess they're basically weighted ping pong balls? I would worry about contamination though, if they're not made of the right kind of plastic.

my sister told me i was getting something very cool....  at first, she thought it was a car, based on a joke my mom made to her. then it was something "almost as cool as a car", so i'm thinking some automated brewing system, sabco or something....  ended up with this....




still very cool.

I guess if you use it to measure boil times, it would count as beer related.  Very nice.  I don't have a sister but if I did, I'm sure she wouldn't love me that much.

A bag of assorted beers I can't get here from my son.  My wife got me my big assed grill/smoker which may not be completely homebrew related but I have pecan smoked 10 pounds of malt for some upcoming rauchbiers.  Tomorrow I'll smoke 10 more pounds with applewood.
I'd really just rather be brewing in sunny Carlsbad New Mexico

A really nice new 14" carbon steel wok. (plus some other stuff).  I've been seasoning my new wok for the last few nights while SWMBO and son are on the mainland.  I really like this new addition to my kitchen.  My old wok was a pos.
