1. Use stir plate for better yeast starters -- currently just swirling when I pass the starter
2. Enter some competitions -- it is nice hearing feedback from neighbors, friends, and family that they think the beer I made is good. But I want "real" feedback on my beer so I can see where I can improve. I have a Mosaic APA fermenting now that will be ready for a competition in Q1 2014. I am brewing an American Wheat tomorrow with Sorachi Ace as the flavor/aroma hop that I will enter as well.
3. Brew a lager -- I don't have a dedicated fermentation chamber, so I was thinking of using the White Labs San Francisco yeast to use for my first lager.
4. Identify 3 of my beers that I enjoy the most and fine tune the brewing process with them -- currently the first on the list is BierMuncher's Cream of Three Crops. I would like for a Kolsch to be the second. Not sure on #3...an APA maybe?
