Did you brew something from Radical Brewing yet?

As the title says: did you brew something from Radical Brewing (by Randy Mosher) yet?

I have the book for about a year now but after my initial read I didn't open it anymore. Not that it isn't a good book (it's actually very entertaining to read), but I have read a lot of other books over this period. A few minutes ago I picked up the book as I was planning on creating a recipe for a new brew and I might use one of his recipes (to the letter or as inspiration).

What did you brew and how did it turn out? Was it on the Braumeister? If so, how did you convert the recipe?

I just recently did "Garden of Wheat’n Bavarian Wiezen". It came out amazing! So creamy, smooth, golden, and... Delicious.

Actually I'm almost all out and am doing another batch tomorrow.

I brewed it on my 20L Braumeister, using Beersmith to scale the recipe. I had a bit more grain loss than I'm used to, probably due to the wheat. The trub loss due to hops (pellets) was also substantial, and I did not think to factor this in.

No matter, it turned out great. Can't wait to having another one. Highly recommended.

I have also had the book for years, and it is very entertaining and full of interesting stories and trivia. Of the actual recipes I think I have tried none, but brewing "coffee porter" I have used the coffee cold extract method described in the book.
