Looking back and a few years of brewing I also looking at the things I use to do and since have quit doing.

To me the main thing is upgrade the quality of the Beer being brew and my taste bud's are the task master.

Bottling gone the way of the dodo bird

Building large yeast quantity down sized or buy two packs

O2 injection of yeast and wort

Worrying about the amount of time of lag (but keep it to normal amount of time.

Going overboard in sanitizing No I don't take my ball valves apart after brewing just common sense of cleaning

worrying of Temps being off a few degree's

As a person once said Its just Beer no more or less

I've made a lot of changes over the past 15 years of brewing too. The biggest was going from extract to all grain. One of the biggest changes that improved the taste the most was when I started dry hopping. Prior to that (and going all-grain) my beers had that "home brew twang" that I hate. I still bottle my beer. I haven't had the money to spring for a beer-dedicated refrigerator and CO2 hoses and equipment.

I've never seen the need for a yeast starter. If I oxygenate before pitching the yeast, I get a bubbling air lock within a couple hours.

I was wondering if anybody with rise to the miss spelling of the title lol

Another item I quit was buying deep freeze's and asking them to do something they where not designed to do, keep things a warmer temp. There life was cut short. Now I purchase refrigerate cost a little more but worth it in the long run

I quit using a false bottom in the mash tun. I use some sort of bazooka screen or stainless hose mesh in both my mash tuns now.

My buddy has a chest freezer we use to lager our beers that is 12 yrs old now and going strong. But it is getting pretty rusty inside.
