Was that the "Red Rocket" clone. Because that's the one I brewed. He lists is as an Amber Ale, though Beer Tools Pro shows it way out of style for an Amber Ale.

i did his american brown 1 time and i thought it was ok maybe it was something i did wrong(it was my 2nd all grain). i am willing to give his recipes another try since his accomplishments they speak mountains of the man.

My current setup has a 5 gal max in the kettle (using PM), and I put all 5 gal in the fermenter, so I adjust all recipes by 5/6ths.
I should really read more carefully, no wonder I am hitting all the OG's +0.01, I double the recipe, end with 11g in the pot and transfer 5.5g to two carboys...my efficiency is also very very high, I need to start reducing the grain bills.

I've done the Weed/Feed/Mow exactly as written and it came out awesome. I've also done the Brown Porter without the brown malt and it came out so-so...I'm guessing it wasn't the recipe but my poor substitution. I look forward to brewing it again but with the brown malt in it.

I've listened to the brewing network podcasts and they have quite a few listeners who have been brewing Jamil's recipes and winning contests with them.

Yeah. I listened to the Brown Porter show recently, and he made a pretty big deal of how important the brown malt was to the recipe. I've never used brown malt in anything myself so I'm not sure what it adds, but apparently it's something.

I did his Imperial IPA and his West Coast Blaster (Amercian Amber Ale)...the two were really good.

There's a reason they call him The Pope.

I've brewed a bunch of these, but the only one I've yet sampled is the West Coast Blaster, his West Coast version of an amber ale, highly hopped and generally bigger than the style calls for. I love this beer. It is awesome. I need to make more.

I'm now waiting on the ESB, the American IPA, the Dry Stout, and the Cream Ale. I've got the Robust Porter fermenting.

One of the things that I really like about this book is that you know you're getting good stuff. So much on the Internet turns out to be sub-par; Jamil's recipe's have been tested, tasted, and tried. They're good.

I will actually sit and read through the book and check across styles and recipes. It is a great way to understand similarities and differences and how small changes in a formulation can make a large difference in the final beer.

Palmer's contribution to the book are also very informative; he tends to get overlooked in this.

Along with How to Brew and Designing Great Beers, I think Brewing Classic Styles is an essential reference for every home brewer.

I did his Ordinary Bitter. I don't know if I have accurately captured it, though. It's not bad, but it's nothing special, either.

Given that he had like 30 beers or something in the final round of competition this year, I think you're safe with his recipes.

I've done Jamil's ordinary bitter, robust porter, american wheat (twice), IPA, and english pale ale. They were all very good. BCS is an excellent resource, to be sure.
