The last batch of IPA I brewed went way too fast. In a matter of weeks I blew through 10 gallons. Guess that's what happens when you host CityGroup for your church weekly. 5 drinking adults with a couple pints each, and my own imbibing throughout the week can add up quick. For the next batch of IPA I wanted something totally crushable for the Summer. I don't really want a 7% ABV 100 IBU monster. I opted for a session strength NW X NE IPA. The clarity and dryness of a great PNW IPA, with the juicy, rounded mouthfeel, peachy esters, and hop explosion of a NEIPA. And of course I bumped it up to 15 gallons this time to ensure I keep it on longer. But I didn't really want 15 gallons of the same IPA. Each keg got a little different treatment. One stayed as brewed, one got Habanero peppers, and one got peaches, lactose, and vanilla.
