comment What's the point of secondary fermentation?
@Mike S: It's important not to rack too soon though; after primary fermentation the yeast clean up a lot of the byproducts created during reproduction and fermentation. There's a greater risk of off flavors when racking too soon than when racking "late". I've left beers in primary for a month or two before racking to primary; they turned out great :)

And it includes an auto-siphon. Not necessary but greatly simplifies racking.

comment Best way to mill grains
+1 for investing in a mash tun and wort chiller first. I buy and crush my grains at my LHBS on brewday and have had great results. But an MLT and wort chiller are a huge priority IMO.
