I posted a thread back in December asking what you were taking away from 2012, what you were proud of, what you were ashamed of, general memorable moments, etc. I left it kind of open and I was really happy with the responses. I'm wondering if anyone has any big goals for 2013. Any big brew projects, aspirations, gear you are going to buy in the next year? Where will you be by the end of 2013? As for me, I'm getting my roommate into the obsession. I'm not sure if it's because he really wants to make beer or if he just feels bad that he drinks a lot of the stuff that I brew. Either way I'm excited. I also hope to get a Ward lab water profile. I've been diluting tap water with RO, but generally guessing blindly at what I need for a water profile. I want to enter my first competition and get some judgmental feedback on a beer that I know I'm proud of. I'll start early, make sure I set beers aside for this, and enter early. I'll take a gravity reading for at least one of these beers. I really am getting lazy about this. So, hopefully this will spark some good conversation and some new threads in the next couple of weeks. I'm getting kind of burned out on the "Is it ok to bottle?" and "how to oak" questions.
