Default Double Chocolate Chili Stout - OMG!!!

OK - I brewed a beer with a base of Youngs Double Chocolate Stout and after moving it to secondary I added 1tsp of chocolate extract and 5 red very hot peppers. I thought they were serrano but these were fatter and red. Bigger than a jalapeno pepper - and hotter!!! They were actuallyt next to the serrano peppers and I was not aware of what the serranos were.

I took 6 months and researched on this forum and others the people who had tried this before me. I believe I have an award winner. I know it is exactly the beer I expected. A sweet chocolate stout with a good amount of heat but not so much it affects you drinking the entire pint.

I like hot stuff - Bw3's hot wings, Hooters hots wings - I like the fire. My wife cant handle the fire. I let her taste this and she said "I dont like the heat but it smells good and tastes good".

How long did you let it ferment in the primary and secondary?

It feremented in Primary a month and then I moved it to secondary and started with three diced peppers. I tasted the next day and it was not as hot as I wanted so I diced two more peppers and put them in. The next day I tasted it and it was right where I wanted it. I racked it off the peppers and bottled.

I soaked the peppers for a few minutes in vodka before I put them in the beer.

Woops - I forgot to tell you the 5 peppers was only for 2.5 galons. (I split the batch in case the chili stout did not turn out).

So - I would use ten peppers for the complete 5 gallons.
