Default 2011 Brewing Goals

Get them out there!


My goals will be fairly limited because 2011 will be a very busy and very cash-strapped year.

1. Brew the oud bruin I've been working on for several months
2. Start my lambic solera
3. Grow hops
4. Fine tune several of my own recipes
5. Fine tune my processes

Hmkay!

1. Start kegging (we will get our first kegs for christmas!).
2. Get a bigger pan, so we can brew more AG.
3. Throw a party with our own homebrew.
4. Build a huge brick bbq so we can cook outside every day of summer while enjoying a homebrew.
5. Combine point 3 & 4.
6. Start brewing our winterbeer on time, so we will be able to enjoy it next christmas/new year.

1) Get some more books and learn more about beer.
2) Acquire better equipment.
3) Brew a Barleywine
4) Work on a few custom brews/names. Brew a few of them.
5) Start washing yeast and making starters.
6) Buy more in bulk.
7) Try as many hop varieties and beer styles as possible (Craft of course)
8) Don't kill the dog if I decide to grow hops.

Edit:

9) I should say I need to try more craft beers and styles of beers.

1) Move to an all grain setup (hopefully Christmas helps with that)
2) Refine a couple recipes I've been working on to be where I want them
3) Keep my pipeline strong (no empty taps!)

Well if the Hop Back and March Pump make it under the Christmas tree this year as expected, I am going to try to NOT buy any new piece of equipment next year.

Since starting this hobby in January, my stove-top brewery has grown into a 10 gallon AG system with a 7 cubic feet keezer setup. I don't want to add up what I have spent in this short time and feel that I can brew just fine with what I have now.

Problem is, I love buying stuff and refining processes. Maybe I'll just try to give up smokes instead.......
