I'm doing it mainly to grow some, but I'll make a tea to try out in a beer or two. I don't think I'd dedicate a whole batch to this.

I'm thinking about a small "30 drop" batch to keep around for those yahoo's that like to stop over to have a couple beers, and end up drinking half my pipeline. I think a label like "Miller Light Clone" should do the trick......(keep those at the front!)

I grow a few different types of "super hots" but don't have any of the scorpions. For anyone looking for some this seller has a pretty good reputation on TheHotPepper.com. http://ghostpepperstore.3dcartstores.com/

There is also a good classifieds forum on TheHotPepper as well. I'm a member there also, same user name as here.

I was wondering about using super hots in beer and am glad I found this topic. Keep us updated! Once I have some ripe pods I might have to try it out!

Here's a guy with a good rep on Ebay selling seedlings, two for $8.99. Considering the length of time it takes to start super hots from seeds, someone might consider these as an option if they're ready to grow them out now.

Brewing up the sculpin clone for this beer TONIGHT! I won't put the heat to it until it's ready to bottle.

Nice. Can't say why, but I pegged you as more traditional.

Brewing it up now. Missed my window of opportunity due to baby fatigue last evening. And yea, the scorpion pepper idea was based on AZ's success with Habanero Sculpin.

All done and in the primary. I had to add an extra half pound of amber DME to the beer as I fell short on my estimate for remaining extra light DME (5 lbs. 1 oz). I pitched the S05 and have the drop freezer set to 60 degrees. I did add yeast nutes and a one minute blast of pure oxygen after topping off to the 5 gallon mark with filtered water.

And.... of course, I forgot to take an OG reading. Pffft.

I decided to do a hops burst instead of a dry hop, so the dry hops got a 45 minute whirlpool at flameout before chilling the wort to pitching temp. I was squeezing wort out of what felt like ten pounds of hops trub from my BIAB bag. What a freaking sponge all those hops are.
