Seems like you've been doing alot of planning. It's good that you have a basic game plan. If you could. Especially since you haven't really started your master plan. Maybe try to get a low priced pressure cooker. Just to have on hand. Another thing that you may want to get are the medical face masks that fit in front of your mouth and nose. You can get that, the pc, and a box of like a hundred gloves on amazon for under $50. Another thing to consider is casing instead of just going the monotub route. And for later. Manure, and using the pc with popcorn for a popcorn/manure tek, or just the popcorn tek.
