I am 2/3rds through it now and love it.  A great 202 level book IMHO.  It breaks down almost all types of beer into how, why, when, and how you could do a "pure" rendition or something else fun.  I am excited to make up a few recipes from the styles he is teaching.
Good Recipe, Good Ingredients, Good Procedure, Good Sanitation = Good Brew.

I just bought Radical Brewing by Randy Mosher, and am wondering which of these weird recipes to try first. Does anyone have a favorite recipe from this book? Any recommendations?

Kotbüss is one of my favorites from that book. Make sure you give it 3 months to meld or you will be disappointed...

Traditonal brew from the region (county, province) of Germany now called "Cotbuss". Was behind Iron Curtain for a lot of the 20th century. Part wheat, part barley, part oats. Should have a head to eat with a spoon, with a sluggable beer under it. Should go great with Roquefort cheese, most berry based deserts, many smoked meats. Illegal to brew after Rheinheitsgebot 2° oats, wheat, small amounts of honey and molasses.
