Default 2010 Brewing goals

Not much for making "resolutions", but I do have a few goals for 2010....

Beer/brewing goals, in no particular order:

1 - Not to purchase any beer from stores
2 - Brew an average of 25 gallons per month (shhhhh)
3 - Kegging - need to get into this
4 - enter at least a few competitions
5 - buy/build some sort of fermentor for 10-12 gallon batches

Anybody else have brewing goals for 2010?

I am resolving to have my brewery room complete by the end of 2010. That entails

1. Patching cracks in the walls.
2. Painting walls with drylock paint
3. Installing ceiling panels
4. Leveling the floor with concrete.
5. Epoxying the floor.
6. Installing new doors, electric, lighting, and plumbing.

Goals for 2010:
1) Get into all grain brewing
2) Kegging and serving through the soda fountain I just got
3) Home malting experiments
4) Getting at least 6 all grain batches done (I am the only one in the family that drinks the stuff, so that is a lot of beer drinking)
