I'm looking for ideas for items that are not necessarily needed for brewing, but may be nice upgrades, or convenient to have, or can make brewing easier/less time consuming/etc
for example, a stir plate. Not needed to make starters, but sure helps

This Saturday I am planning to make a pot of gumbo with some ducks I have in the freezer. They were picked and frozen whole. My original plans were to boil them with celery and onion and carrots to make a stock, then debone and use the stock after making the roux, the basic normal process.

as of this morning I find myself without a .45, so I guess I need to start shopping around for a new one. I had an XD in the 5" model and really liked it. Any idea what they are selling for these days? I'm probably going to look to stay around $600.

I was reading through the NOMA thread and looking at the food pictures and thinking "That's cool and all, but I'd rather have my grandmother's snap beans and cornbread and pot roast over that stuff." I guess I just prefer comfort foods over these exotic dishes.
This seems to completely contradic...
