I have some ingredients getting old so I am brewing this in the morning.
To let you know ahead of time........I like HOT beers!
3 lbs breiss cherry wood
1 lb C120L
10 lbs 2-row
WLP 380 hefe yeast pitched at 60 and fermented in the mid sixties
1 oz chinook at 60
1 oz chinook at 5
1 LARGE bowl of garden grown HOTTT!! jalap's and hab's @ 60 minutes
I just kicked a keg of a 70 % cherry wood US-05 pepper bomb that used the same hops and it was quite good except the ashy wood smoke was a bit heavy!
cheers and happy brewing!
Is that amount of peppers add a hotness comparable too a spicy red beer made with say "hot" v8 or is it hotter
I have not ever drank HOT V8, but the keg that just kicked is HOT, It will tingle your throat and lips....My brother says its like gasoline!
The aroma is Hot!!
The steam coming outta the kettle about burned my eyes!
I find it quite tasty!
