Nah...habanero is for wusses....

Naga. You know you want to......

Seriously though, search for capsimel. Both here and over at Gotmead. You should find plenty of guidance and ideas......

I have some yellow 7 pots and bhut jolokias the flavor on the 7 pots is amazing, but you only have half a second to enjoy before the fire hits.

Then habaneros will do for you.

add some cayenne pepper powder as well. That will give you more heat, instead of just bite.

Naga is also fine, especially if you de-seed and make sure that you remove all the umbilical (white connecting tissue to the seeds). Don't be such a "girly".... it's only chilli

equally, if you want to control the heat a bit more then habaneros will work fine, but with the same caveat as above.

as for Descender's idea.... ? hum ? yes, that sounds good too.

If I go for the habanero just how hot will it be, I am assuming that a gallon DJ will dilute the heat? I am aiming for a winter drink to hit the spot,
It also looks like I will have to order chilli from Internet as I can't source locally,,,?
Is this am easy mead to accomplish !?

Taste the habaneros. Some are super hot, some less. Depends a lot on type, soil, moisture and weather. My chocolate habaneros are HOT but I had done yellows last year that were pretty mild.

Add to your mead and test every day or so. If you are really worried about heat, use jalapeños. I made a cherry chipotle mead that used 12 dried smoked jalapeños, and its just pleasantly warm. They were left in there for 7 days.
