I'd agree, try some comps. You may like it, or like Major and I, you may quickly find it a pain in the ass and quit doing it. But it'll give you feedback on how you can tweak your beers. Are you making your own recipes? I have never had any interest at all in brewing others recipes (with the exception of Mdixon's wit) because to me, it holds no challenge. What I am doing may be exactly the same as someone else (after all, you can only add Citra hops so many times...) but it's mine because it's what I wanted to make, not because I read that this is what I should make or how I should do it. It's your beer. F'ing it up is part of the fun.
Also, I've read brewing in kilts enhances the experience although I've n'er tried it. And is your cooler blue?
Lastly, if you only brew a few times a year for yourself and that's all you want to do, that's fine too.
