Well this is my ideal list. I know it will change; some beers being deleted due to time or carboy/keg space. Some will be added, mainly sours or beers for events. I have most of the recipes I want to experiment with at this point and now it is just sitting down and brewing them. Does anyone else plan out a year of brewing?
In 2011 I also hope to develop a brewing collective in my neighborhood somewhat like the the guys at the Pacific Brewing Laboratories . I visited them earlier this month and had a great time. I loved what they are doing. My idea is to meet once a month. Essentially you invite a bunch of friends or friends of friends, and we would meet at my house or a friends and we would brew a batch of beer. As we brew we would teach anyone who is interested in learning about brewing and the rest of the attendees would drink homebrew from the tap. It is a great way to have fun, teach about brewing and brew beer. We would leave out a donation bucket and the money collected would be used to buy ingredients for the next batch. I hope to role out the first session in January.
I will update about my Feliz Navidad and BRETT!!! beers in the next few days.
