Default What Should I put in my Randall??

I have a Blichmann Hoprocket that works as a randall and an ESB on tap. I'm thinking maybe apples or cinnamon. What else in a Randall would go good with an ESB?

I think the ESB style is all about delicacy, simplicity, balance, and ease of drinking. It'd be a shame to fortify it with added flavors. Kind of like drowning a rare prime ribeye steak in a garlicky cream sauce. Just let the recipe speak for itself.

I would pump it through some ghost peppers.

Respectfully disagree. For me the reason homebrewing is so fun is that you can do whatever you want! ESBs are such a classic style, it almost makes it more fun to mess with them.

Love the experimental spirit! I want to get a Hop Rocket and use it as a hop back. Have you used it that way? If so, how did the hop aroma work out?

Eyeballs?

Along with hops, I sometimes put fruit in mine and it works great!
