Get my commercial space's lease signed by the end of the month, order in a 6bbl brewery, stress about quality and quantity, and make local craft beer drinkers happy.

Build my fermentation cabinet. I've got all the stuff, but I've just been letting it sit.

Figure out the minimum amount of water chemistry needed to get a neutral profile for my tap water.

Zero infections. They aren't common (maybe 15% of my batches to varying degrees), but I'm sure I can get that number down.

Take more measurements. Put the new refractometer to use.

Build a better place to store my equipment, ferment, and bottle condition my brew. I need to get shelving, containers, etc to make my set up more user friendly.

1. Try to finish the brew rig

2. Build a collar for the fermentation chamber/kegerator

3. Perfect the brewing process on the new brewing rig

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?
