  1. Build a Kegerator (sanyo 4912, here I come)
  2. Break old habits, like procrastinating on yeast washing.
  3. Perfect a few more House Recipes
  4. Do more brewing with other HBT'ers
  5. Convince the wife that NHBC '08 is worth the 8 hour drive to Cincy. Even if she doesn't want to join me.

1. Build a kegerator (hopefully a stand up freezer model with 5 taps on top and space to lager underneath).
2. Brew some lagers.
3. Buy more kegs. 17 just isn't enough
4. Enter some comps.
5. Get together with some of the locals for brew days and activities. In general get more involved with the local club.
6. Plant some hops.
7. Buy another conical
8. Motorize my mill and build a milling station. (tired of using a drill).
9. Do some decoctions
10. Par down my inventory of grains. I'm still sitting on over 500 pounds.
Drinking on the keg: BPA, Brown Ale, Dry Mead, Wee Heavy aged on Oak, CAP
Drinking in the Bottle:

Well I have only been brewing for 6 months so my goals are simple:
1. Become a better brewer.
2. Let my fermenters sit for at least a month before touching.
3. Let my bottled brew sit for at least three weeks before touching.
4. Brew twice a month.
5. Brew new styles, especially ones I have never cared for in the past.
6. Create a recipe of my own, and brew it again and again until I get it right.
7. Enter in one competition.
Bottomline, I need to make more beer.
