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.

Batch Size: 5 gallons
Starting Gravity: 1.042

- 0.5 lb Crystal 40
- 3.3 lb Nortwestern Gold Malt Extract

- 1.0 oz Cascade Hop Pellets (5.8%AA) for 15 minutes

- White Labs Dry English Ale Yeast (WLP007)
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.
