Default If you like hoppy ambers... Jamil's Red Rocket Clone

I just finished a bomber that I bottled from a keg, I have no more now. Anyhow, as the title suggests, if you like hoppy ambers, you owe it to yourself to brew Jamil's Red Rocket Clone. I had more than one evening drinking session with a neighbor enjoying this brew. With my efficiency, it came in at 8%. I did cut the IBUs from 60-something to 45. The last few pints I enjoyed just seemed to be better and better (I brewed it in April, with the high abv, the extra time sure helped). With the draining of the bomber tonight, I already miss this beer. FWIW, this is a definite do-over for me!

Made it myself a few times and like you said it is a very tasty brew that can sneak up on you.

Love him or hate him, you gotta respect the man's recipes. His Amber - Red Ale is also one of my favourites. Probably my most-brewed beer.

I tried some sort of extract version of his recipe, and it turned out great!

That's the one. I've brewed it a couple of times. I like big hoppy beers so it suits me. But I took some to a club meeting recently and it wasn't received all that well, though in retrospect I shouldn't have presented it as an American Amber because it's way out of style for that. Plus it was sorta young.

Mine ended up 1.067 (FG 1.014) and 66 IBU's.

I just brewed this and noted a couple things. The first is that the real deal has a lot more hop aroma. I definitely think there needs to be some dry hopping here. The second is that the sweetness is "different". I almost think the 120 should be increased to 1 lb. and the 40 either eliminated and replaced with base or at least reduced.

I am enjoying the beer, but I thought it missed the mark by a bit on Red Rocket. Will do a little experimentation next time I brew it.
