Plan on cracking a bottle on Sunday to check carbonation. It sat on roasted chiles for 2 maybe 3 days. I was planning on longer but when I pulled a sample it had plenty of that veggie-lime pepper taste and a good amount of heat. Primed it for 2.6 volumes co2 to make it a nice lively beer, also cause I have been told that something about the chiles makes it difficult for the co2 to dissolve. I'll update when I open one. Not planning on competing with it but thanks for all the info!

So I've just poured a glass after work and I am pleased! No head at all, but nice sharp carbonation. Hopefully it will develop a bit more in the next week. Great "green" aroma. Not of young beer but green as in fresh vegetable, slightly citrusy. Smooth drinking, refreshing with good bitterness up front and gradually warming to heat the back of your mouth and throat as you swallow. The heat lingers for just a few seconds and fades. Slight roasted pepper taste but there is a lot going on with hops and the heat. Not incredibly bitter...doesn't taste like 77 ibu. A keeper recipe for sure! Any of you around SW VA care to come over and critique a bottle on the porch?
