Default How many have brewed Jamil's recipes? (Nice...Red Rocket)

So I just tapped Jamil's Red Rocket clone (highly hopped Amber Ale) which was the first of Jamil's recipes that I've brewed. I still have his American Brown in a fermenter, and I brewed his Robust Porter today. I kept his grain bills exact but sometimes needed to do hop substitutes, but tried my best to keep close to his intent.

Like I said, I tapped the Red Rocket. Still a bit undercarbed but, wow. I don't think it's quite to style for an Amber Ale, but dang this is a fine recipe. If any Fort Wayne brewers are reading, it reminds me of the Imperial Red that Mad Anthony's had on tap recently. Not a session brew, but a nice one pint pour.

So how many of you have brewed Jamil's recipes? Have most people had good luck with them? Any stand out?

I've brewed or based beers off:

A ProMash Recipe - Kolsch
Dry Stout

..and just brewed one based off his Belgian Wit in his BYO styles article.

I used the same grain bill (well, subbed for the pale choc.) for my Bravo Red. It turned out quite nice.

I have also brewed a lot of his recipes from Brewing Classic Styles. They are a great place to start if you have never brewed the style.

I've done a couple of his recipes, all with good success.

I'm doing his Berliner Weisse next.

I have done several, here's the latest. Blonde, American Wheat, Saison All have been quite tasty so far.

I just did the Southern English Brown. Brewed the recipe verbatim. Went into bottles last night. Seems like it should be pretty good.

I've also done Janet's Brown Ale (which I've put in the RDB) and it is flat out phenomenal (but McDole's recipe, not Jamil's). Cross between an IPA and Brown ale - it's a great "session" or "everyday" beer for me, even though mine's still around 7%.

Those two and the 888 are the only recipes I haven't concocted myself. I prefer to make my own style, but it was nice to not have to think too hard about it and know I was going to get a good brew in the end.

I have JZ's Evil Twin kegged and ready to tap as soon as there is room in the keggerator.

Early samplings are a pretty tasty Amber. This is an all late addition beer with Centennial and Amarillo.

I brew almost exclusively out of his style book, although I sometimes put a twist on the beer....lets see, I've done the Dunkelweizen, Am. Pale Ale, Belgian Pale, Saison, IPA, porter, Belgian Blonde, Southern English Brown (although I soured it and am fruiting it), and some more I can't remember. They have all come out phenomenal.

I brewed a mild, which I think is Jamil's recipe. I say I think so, because Beerrific gave it to me in chat one night, and he said it was from Jamil.

So, that makes one so far.

I really need the styles book- I would really like to try most of the ones ColoradoXJ13 mentioned. (I'll drop hints for Christmas).

I've brewed his mild twice and his dry stout. The mild as both extract and AG, but both times with a few substitutions (the extract with a lower amount of dark chocolate malt for the light chocolate malt, the AG with Pioneer hops for the EKG; I believe the light chocolate malt had the largest influence on the flavour). The dry stout was excellent.
