Awesome. I was thinking about the "soak jalapeno (with seeds and everything) in vodka for a few days and then dump into secondary" method. Maybe I should try them side by side to see the effects of each method...
3 weeks is too long to wait sometimes eh?

NICE!!

This is the method I have used, sans peeling. Soaking in vodka may work, but why do it?

In secondary or after primary you are dropping the chilis in alcohol anyways.

That is why I don't peel really. I go straight from heat to beer. Preferably with a sizzle.
