I've seen the light, and it beams SSOS!
I had the pleasure of visiting with PTA and his family on Friday night, and what's visiting without homebrew?
He had numerous different beers on tap, and I had my first opportunity to drink SSOS. WOW! WOW! WOW! I loved it! Definitely on the short list of must brew recipes. He also had an imperial stout. I think I found a new definition of what stout is to me. I enjoy Guinness and the like, but this was something extraordinary!
And for the real question that all of you are wondering, no, he's not a cirus freak, and he's only partially as crazy as he is on the board!

Yeah, that Imperial Stout is better than I remembered -or- maybe it was because we had that after 4 other pitchers of homebrew. Anyway, it was great having you over.

PTA might have just created another user name and posted this about himself to throw us off...

Nah Walt, if he had posted that himself the praise would have been much higher!
My only regret was seeing the two un-tapped kegs of Denny's Rye IPA. PTA make sure to call me when those go on tap!

PTA, an Imperial Stout is on my short list of beers to make. Care to share your recipe? I have not made one before and rarely make a stout so I'm a rookie in that group.
