I will celebrate the beginning of Fall and the new brewing season by making a batch of Sister Star of the Sun IPA this weekend. This recipe is amazing.

I took a keg of this to a picnic a week ago, and it was awesome. Too bad it was on a Wednesday...I was moving slow at work the following day.

A godly beer.

SSoS was the third all-grain recipe I brewed. The first two were quite decent, but any doubt about the quality of my beer totally disappeared after that.

I dearly love that beer. Anytime I have a couple of beers not come out quite right and I get down on myself about brewing I brew this recipe and B52 and all is right with the world again. Both come out excellent every time.

In snooping around, I see this from Dave Brockington, who apparently is the recipe creator:

"Do not, under any circumstances, use domestic two-row -- the beer is too insipid, lacking a credible maltiness, making for a rather one-dimensional IPA. Obviously, stay away from six-row as well."

What does the "obviously" comment mean? That six-row is as insipid as two-row?

In this context, Ken, yes.

Tom,

How do you brew the American version? Interested in trying something like this as well.

You use some American hops like Chinook...

Oh wait a minute!

Need to make another SSoS.

I ended up with about 5.5 gallons of 1.070 SSOS and a gallon of 1.040 beer that I cooked on the stove for a smaller version....Little Sister Derivative Ale? I'll keg the SSOS and bottle the LSD. I agree with Michael, this beer turns out well every time I brew it.

Wow, a whole bottle? Usually only takes a couple drops.
