I get the same thing, people wondering why I don't have an IPA. I just tell them what I mentioned earlier and I've had a few people not even interested in trying what I have just because they only drink IPA's. There's plenty to try out there and it doesn't bother me that they aren't refined enough to be willing to try something different.

There are so many IPA's out there, that is what people are used to seeing and consuming (other then TV beer). Just make something with alot of hops, call it an IPA, and watch people drink it. Most people off the street would know the difference.

Count me in as someone who's also not obsessed with IPA's. I like Bells 2H (have a clone of it in my fermenter right now), but this will be something that gets brewed once/year or every other for myself and friends.

I think its cool that you are brewing your unique styles and not trying to sandwich in another competing IPA. Eventually the market will probably shift around and there will be the next thing thats extremely popular.

Got any more pics of that new brewhouse? Really cool thread.

So got the propane tank moved from the old brewery to the new one (all of 30 yards). It's all hooked up and I tested the new burner and from 140 degrees to a rolling boil of 35 gallons, it took 30 min. I'm happy with that. Got the new heater for the fermentation room and it's holding temp at about mid 60's, so happy with that. Looks like it's almost time to to brew a batch.
I just need to figure out how it's all going to work and where to position everything. Also need to get the front door hung. It always comes down to the details.
