I don't have a schedule of when i plan on brewing what this year per say. My goal now that i have a crusher and 10 gal pot is to achieve a consistent brewing efficiency and work on perfecting my double IPA and American amber ale. Then once I'm comfortable I will move on to my American wheat, American pale ale and English mild or American brown ale. I figure that will take me about a year

I've got my next two brews planned for the next two weekends:

Jan. 5th - Stone Ruination Clone
Jan. 12th - EdWort's Robust Porter

After that I am aiming to brew 1 batch a week through the end of February (at which point I promised SWMBO I would install hardwood floors in the house...at least I'll have beer for it though) but I haven't planned any specifics. I know I want to do my first IIPA, and possible an Imperial Porter as well. I am trying to work on those two general styles for now (Porters and IPA's) but I may try my first hefe or lager this year as well.

Also, there will be regular batches of Apfelwein. My in-laws gave me an entire beginners brewing equipment kit for christmas, while I already had a starting kit from last year, my brothers 5-gal carboy, and a 2nd fermentation bucket I bought on my own last year...so now I have 3 primary's 2 secondary's and 2 bottling buckets (one of which may become a primary)...I am determined to put them all to good use, and Apfelwein is one of the easiest ways to do that.

Those are my plans as of now, I just hope reality doesn't interfere...like last summer when I had to spend a month re-plumbing the entire house due to leaky pipes under the slab...or last spring wen we tiled the kitchen...or this fall after Hurricane Sandy knocked down the fence...

Oh, I also want to plant hops this year.

I've still gotta bottle my pumpkin brown ale since I'm lazy, and I still have plenty of dunkelweizen left. I'm planning on going AG somewhere around February too, but here is the tentative schedule. It'll go faster if I start kegging...and turn my cousin's old fridge into a kegerator. Then I'll be going through my "house beers" at a reasonable clip.

January
Robust Porter
February
Amber Ale
Double IPA
March
IPA
Barleywine
April
Robust Porter
Belgian Strong Pale
May
Amber Ale
American Wheat
June
IPA
Cherry Stout
July
Robust Porter
Saison
August
Amber Ale
Spiced Pumpkin Weizenbock
September
IPA
Winter Warmer version of my Amber Ale
October
Robust Porter
Scottish 80/- or Wee Heavy
November
Amber Ale
Dubbel
December
IPA
Imperial Stout

Stuff I have planned to brew before Spring rolls around and ruins brewing season for me:

Black IIPA
Amber Ale Kit I got for Christmas
Apollo IPA (May make this one a SMaSH)
Punkin Ale

Stuff I'm pondering:

A Mad Elf clone in in early March, so it can age until winter
A Hefeweizen in early spring
My first mead

I tend to brew two ways: with the seasons and with my own whims. There's something great about waking up on a Saturday morning, thinking "I feel like brewing a porter today", and heading to the LHBS for the supplies.

That being said, here's what we've got planned so far:

January
Ordinary Bitter
Falconer's CDA

February
IPA -- probably Citra/Centennial/Nelson Sauvin
Brown Porter

Throughout the summer, I will start on a pretty heavy rotation of Saisons and other Belgians.

In July, I will brew our Holiday Barley Wine.

Other goals for the year: Finally get into lagering; Procure a barrel and begin a Solera project; build a kegerator.

Cheers!

American IPA, American Brown Ale, American Stout, Saison, repeat.

Mix a few Singels, Dubbels, and Tripels in there and that's all I'm planning for my entire year.

Hey 'delphian...
spam, spam, spam, spam, robust porter, spam and spam....that doesn't have much spam in it. Just trying to be funny...I love how often porter pops up in your list.

Mine looks like this:
about 6x IPA (for me and friends)
about 2x brown ale (moose drool-ish, for how much everyone seems to love it, especially those that pucker at the smell of hops)
about 3x coffee porter (for my friend the roaster and my wife)
about 2 x my bizarre barley/wheat hybrid with caraway (for the roaster's wife)

and a couple attempts at something big like IIPA or wee heavy...if I can get to it soon enough to shelf it for 6-9 months before next Thanksgiving.

Phew...writing it down stresses me out (I generally do 10-12 gallon no-chill batches these days)...too bad it's like 15 degrees outside!
