Not sure what's in store for 2012. I think my process and equipment is finally stable so I hope to make some (more) kick ass beer I am going to start blending Lambic, since I've brewed a batch each year for the past 3 years (raw wheat, turbid mash, aged hops) and it's finally time to make some gueze. I also want to try a few small jugs aged with different fruit.
I went to my first NHC in 2011, got a pH meter, motorized my grain mill, and dialed in some of my favorite styles. I was also really pleased with some competition results that I got (and others, not so pleased
). I already have a pump, plate chiller, 20 gallon kettle, second freezer for lagering, refractometer, microscope, hemacytometer, etc, so I don't think I need any more toys this year.
