Did plenty of BIAB brewing.
No competitions; 1/2 my batches were bad or experimental disasters. One good batch that could have been good to send the hop flavor quickly faded.

I'll just focus on good beer in 2015.

Build a fermentation chamber, control temps!

Dial down my process with simple recipes. Basically learn how to make a good beer without trying to experiment.

Hopefully start kegging and get a better system to control temperature.

We'll, I failed all of the above. Looks like a good list for 2015 though!

1) Successfully become a BIAB Brewer.
2) Perfect my 4 staple Extract Batches in BIAB form and submit at least one to a Competition.
3) Get my buddy brewing as he will likely become as addicted as me!

Brew up some more rare or extinct styles while re-brewing old favorites. Some of which need to be converted to PM.

I failed too. Didn't start kegging. Probably won't for the foreseeable future.

Moved to a place where kegging was even less of a possibility than before. I did, however, move to using polypins and gravity pouring cask ale. So that's somewhat similar.

Going to brew one more extract brew on new years day (vanilla porter).

Then, no more brewing until my semi-automated ebrew stand is fully operational. Then it's all-grain going forward.
