I think it sounds like a plan! Sounds pretty good. Are you going to cut the habaneros up or leave them whole? I have a bwer im calling Midnight in Vermont in secondary right now, pretty close to that but trade the peppers for maple syrup

Thanks for the reply! I think I'll cut them up so it's easier to take them out. Your Version sounds amazing also. Tell me how it turns out.

I ask because I imagine cutting them up will have a huge difference in the heat you get. And I will let you know how mine is. My first time playing with midnight wheat

Should I put them in whole to get more heat or does cutting them up produce more heat?

Definately cutting them up will give you more

I hear people freeze fruit whenever they make a fruit beer. it somehow helps with breaking cells or something that to get more sugar. Should I freeze them?

freeze them, chop them and soak them in just enough vodka to immerse them for sanitation. i am a huge fan of spicy food, but i think your habaneros will be overwhelming. even if you like the flavor/heat, it will probably dominate at that level. i'd start with one and go from there...
