Default 2014: A year of German beers!

Looking forward to next year and to celebrate my 1/4 German heritage, I want to have a year of brewing German beers and have them ready at the appropriate times. I have already made a Schwarzbier and have 11 gallons of Octoberfest to be bottled in a week.

Heres what Im planning so far: All brewed in accordance with Getman purity law. Concentrating on German malts, hops and yeast strains.

January- Eisbock

March - Dunkel

May - Maibock
June - Pilsner (10 gallon)
July - Schwarzbier

September - Ocktoberfest (10 gallon)
Helles (10 gallon)

November - Dortmunder

What would you add to this schedule and when?

That's a great idea! What are your plans for the other 10?

Edited- because we must have posted at the same time and you answered my question!

You need a dopplebock for December, I think. And a hefeweizen for August. Or move the July Schwarzbier later, and have the hefe in July. I'd rather see an alt in July, rather than a schwarzbier but April could be a good month for an alt as well.

I drank too much of that last night, as I took some to a friend's and am not liking that particularly beer at this moment.

Being 100% German I have to ask - Where's the Alt? Where's the Kölsch? No love for Bavarian Hefeweizen? Lots of people mix a Pils with some soda (like Sprite) in summertime. I'd put Kölsch and Alt in the spring b/c it's big during Karneval. Hefeweizen is always good. Prost!
