I've been researching homebrewing for a while and just got into it a few months ago. I'm going to start my second partial-grain recipe next week and I'd like to get some advice on it. The recipe involves adding some smoked chipotle peppers to the secondary fermentation a few days before bottling, then recommends letting it age in the bottles for as long as possible.
If I were to modify this process by following the instructions, but instead of adding the peppers then bottling a few days later, could I add the peppers then just transition it to another carboy after a few days? I only ask because I'm hoping to let this beer age for at least 6 months, and by that time I will likely have a keg setup so I won't have to bottle it.
Thanks everyone, and I'm looking forward to getting your help and contributing once I learn more!
