Default Brewing Calendar

This question simply must be on here somewhere, but I couldn't find it....


Anyway, I'm soliciting opinions for a brew calendar--what time of year should you brew what so that (a) they ferment properly, and (b) they're ready at the proper time of year. I see these brew calendars in catalogs and such, but I figured the experts would have better ideas.

Clearly, if one has heaters and lagering fridges then (a) is less important, but for those of us who haven't built a lagering fridge....

Cheers!

I have a little list from someone around here but it is essentially what is listed in the post below but in an excel format.

How could I not find that? Wow, I get my internet card revoked.

Either that or their search engine gets its card revoked.


Anyway, thanks! That's exactly what I wanted. Clearly I brew what I want when I want, but sometimes I forget to think ahead, and a February without a Maple Nut Brown is sad indeed.
