Default Chili/ Jalapeno beer recipes to share?

I have had a request for a Jalapeno or chili flavored beer for a friends B-day the end of summer. I wanted to check with the group here to see if anyone has a tried and tasted recipe that they would like to share.

I'm thinking pretty light or possibly red ale or possibly a lager with Jalapenos or chilis in the secondary?

is this a question? rhetorical at best

beer with peppers infused is done on a commercial scale as well as with homebrewers world wide. use the search function here ofr google your query and you will find your answer.

Not a red or lager but I have a chocolate chili porter that came out very nice after maturing for a few months.

Here's my recipe for my experimental Chocolate Mole Porter......It needs more mellowing time, It uses my home made chili Powder and cayenne pepper...It has a noticeable burn and also causes a bit of heartburn...

Next time I brew it though I am going to reduce the Lactose to about an ounce and up the chocolate disks...

I recently brewed a Porter (AHS's London Porter mini mash kit) and added about 6 or 7 (I think) ancho chilis (dried) at flameout and removed once the wort was cooled. I just opened my first bottle last night after a few weeks of bottle conditioning/carbonating and it was missing much of the chili flavor. I'm thinking it may come back a bit after some aging because when I took a wee taste when bottling, it had the distinct raisin-y, mild heat, slightly smoky ancho chili flavor and scent.

Next time I would add a bit more chili at flame out (esp if using a low heat chili like the ancho). I wasn't really looking for heat, moreso the chili flavor. Another thing I would try is when taking a sample in the fermenter to add a chili-steeped-tea if it seems the chili flavor is not dominant enough.

Brews typically mellow out over time with aging so I would suggest, IMHO, to add a bit more chili than you would initially think.

I'll post the recipe when I'm in front of my brew-laptop later this evening.
