Roadkill Ale - Mk I

Source: Steven Lee Pearson
Recipe added: 09/01/01

This is based very loosely on Racoon Lager. It's one of my (and my friends') favorite recipes, although I don't always stick with it "as is". This version is a bit lighter hopped than other versions, but still quite good. The SG readings may be a bit off - my old hydrometer was an inaccurate POS which has since been replaced.


Recipe type: Extract
Batch Size: 5 gallons
Starting Gravity: 1.042
Finishing Gravity: 1.004
Time in Boil: 60 minutes
Primary Fermentation: 3 weeks
Secondary Fermentation: none



Start with 2 gal cold water and steep crystal 40 to near boil. Remove the grain and crank up the heat a bit. Add in the Gold Extract and Honey, bring to a low boil. When boil begins, add 2 oz of Cascade hops. 45 minutes later add in the other 1 oz of Cascades and a Whirlfloc tablet. Pour the hot wort into a carboy of cold water, and top it off to about 5 gallons with more cold water. Pitch the yeast when it cools down to the appropriate temp. Bottle using 1.5 cups of light DME.
