Default New Years Resolutions...

On the Homebrew side, I'm gonna start to tweak recipes more. Since I've been homebrewing I usually use the recipes here or on other sites. I've been tweaking a recipe on the last couple of runs. I just Tapped it and it is great. The best beer I've made.

On the personal side, I'm gonna try and keep it simple. Get rid of sh it I don't need. Don't buy sh it I don't need( except for brewing)..Everything in my attic...Gone..I started last year by selling a large portion of my guitar collection. I'm just sick of all the stuff I acquired over the last couple of decades.

Oh yeah, Be the best dad and husband I can be. I forgot that one a couple of times this year.

Let's see...Personally:

1. Visit the friends and family around the country that I continually say I'm going to visit and never do (only a few places)
2. Save as much money as possible (for aforementioned travel and to start padding my savings account)
3. Do one good deed a week for someone else

Beer wise:
1. Start brewing at least once a month (to become a better brewer and cut down on buying commercial beers)
2. Learn as much as I can that way I can help people out on these forums
3. Transition from extract with steeping grains to partial mash

Mmmm....

Beer wise: To get a few all grain batches in. To get my ferm space built out, and get a couple taps setup. I'd like to be brewing around 10g a month..

Life wise, the same as always. To positively affect the lives of those around me, to succeed in the tasks that I take on, to be a good husband, father, son, brother, friend, co-worker, community member, landlord and citizen, and equally important, to enjoy life!

My resolution is to wait at least a year before I make any promises to myself.

Homebrew side: brew beer lol. Have been thinking about maybe going all grain.

Personal side: lose 10 lbs, at least. I've always been told to keep a "roof" over your "head", but now the roof is staring to sag....

Homebrew side: Get up enough courage to brew a sour ale. Still a wee bit chicken about bringing lacto in contact with my equipment.

Would also like to perfect my small-batch AG process.

Personal side: drop some weight, take a real vacation (not just go home to visit family), move into a different apartment - perhaps move back to Chicago if I can swing it with my job.

1 Create and stick to a realistic household budget and be out of debt (other than mortgage) by mid-year.
2 Create and stick to some sort of periodic clean-up schedule to keep this house from looking like a pit
3 Fit both cars in the garage
4 Make up some scratch beer recipes
5 Start regular exercise and stick with a healthier diet
6 Start Smoking


...wait...scratch that last one.
