5 Min: Pull about 2 cups of wort, put in blender, and blend with below
3/4 tspn ground Chipotle pepper
1 each dried Guajillo, Ancho, & Pasillo Peppers
Seeds from above peppers removed and toasted with

Day 2 of fermentation, my brew room smelled like heaven (from the cloves). Most of the forward flavor came from the carafe. So I recommend reducing the amount.
