Useful supplies from homebrew shops? Modernist etc.

I'm curious if anyone has suggestions for useful supplies one might get from a homebrew shop, for modernist or other specialty cooking. I'm looking to buy some amylase and it seems to be the easiest way to get it at a reasonable price.

The homebrew shop I'm looking at does flat rate shipping, so I figure I might as well pick up a few other interesting things to play with. Any suggestions?

They also sometimes sell wine fining agents like chitosan and kieselsol, but those are mostly used with a centrifuge. If you’re looking for a good source of modernist ingredients at good prices in home cook quantities, Modernist Pantry is the place to go.

Co2 carbonating rig. Various small herbs and spices that might be hard to find elsewhere - particularly roots like angelica. Hops are fun to try cooking with. Champagne yeast for making alcohols that are then turned into vinegars. Lactobacillus culture to kickstart lacto ferments. 

Brewers maltodextrin is a half decent replacement for nzorbit
