I'm sort of a Jamil fan, listened to all the podcasts and bought the book. Fresh Evil Twin reminds me why I homebrew in the first place. That beer is awesome! Black Butte Porter Clone from CYBI is outstanding, Ordinary Bitter, American Brown is excellent, Dry stout, Mild, Robust Porter all great beers.

I loved the OB. His advice about the sparing use of special roast is spot on.

I've made variations on that recipe 8 times now, varying from 1.070 to 1.080 with the following Wyeast varieties - 1388 (twice), 3787 (twice), 1762, 3739, 1214, 3655. It is SWMBO's favorite beer, so I make sure the Golden Strong pipeline is full

The key things I've learned:
1 - Make sure you mash at 149F, or a decoction at 143/158F, to get appropriate attenuation.
2 - Make a 3L starter
3 - Give it at least 2-3 months aging to round out the flavor
4 - Use high quality, good flavored Pils malt. I don't use the domestic Pils anymore, just German or Belgian.
5 - Ramp the temperature from 65F to mid 70's over the first week of fermentation.
6 - If you use the Duvel yeast 1388 or WLP570, give it plenty of time to finish fermenting at ~80F. This can take weeks.

I know this is an old thread but I cant find an extract recipe for Red Rocket anywhere and all the links are no longer available.

Thanks,

I also brew almost exclusively out of the BCS book. I am not one of those guys looking at going pro and I only enter 1 or 2 competitions a year. So I am not overly interested in a lot of my own recipe formulation. I was looking for a list of solid recipes across the range of styles. This book definitely fits the bill.

Argggh.... Zombies.....

I really really like this recipe. So much that I've brewed variations of it 6 times. I made an accidental imperial version of it one time (new mash tun gave me way better efficiency than I expected). I've made it with 2-row and MO, and definitely prefer the version with MO - it's "richer", the 2-row version lacked a certain something.

I've never actually had a Red Rocket, but Founder's Red Rye is very similar as well.

I just took a silver medal with a variation on this as a brown ale - it started out as a blend of 75% of a more session-y version Jamil's Amber (1.048 OG) and 25% Foreign Extra stout (1.064 OG), which one of my friends declared the best thing he'd ever had. So I designed a recipe based on those parameters:

4 gallon batch

6.5lb Crisp MO
.5lb Crystal 40
.25lb Crystal 150
2oz Carabrown
3.5oz Chocolate mixed with Dehusked Carafa II (using up some dribs and drabs)
4oz roast barley 300L
1lb flaked barley

.35oz Magnum@60
.52oz Chinook @10,0
.55oz Cascade @10,0
.54oz Citra at 10,0

15 minute hopstand at flameout before chilling.

1.058 OG, 1.012 FG. US-05 as the yeast.

I think I would have taken a gold if I had dry-hopped it, the judges thought it wasn't hoppy enough.

Thanks,
Download the Jamil Show "Amber Ale" episode from the Brewing Network. He gives the recipes and brewing suggestions on that show.


It does taste just like red rocket

I searched on their website and could not find this particular show. Was hoping someone had the recipe since this seems to be a very popular brew.

Beerdujour.com used to have a ton of the Jamil Show show transcripts and recipes, but it went down a while back. Fortunately the Wayback Machine has a record of it:

Here's the Extract recipe: https://web.archive.org/web/20120101...anAmberAle.htm

Oh. I just use iTunes and pocketcasts. It's easy to find on both of those.
