So I have this nottingham yeast cake left over from this batch (bottling next week). I really have had good luck w/ this yeast (blond ale, now this one)... it tears through these ales in like 2 days.

What are some ideas for pitching onto it? I'm sure there will be some leftover jalapeno taste. I'm thinking a nice healthy american pale ale, just to keep it clean and see how the left over jalapeno acts. thoughts?

Default Third time


Just brewed Jalapeno batch #3. After a phenomenal debut, the second one went off track somehow.

So, now I'm hoping that this one turns out like the first. I no chilled this batch so had to make no chill hop adjustments. My mash temp might have been a little low at around 148-150 and my yield came in low too (started off with preboil of 6 g went I wanted 6.5. And I used Saaz hops instead of Hallertau like I've done before because I just ran out.

So, a couple question marks but I'm still hopeful that this one will work out because it is such a great brew and everyone's looking forward to it. Will report back in a few weeks! Cheers

Do you roast and soak all of the pepper the day before brewing, then leave half there until time to add them to secondary, or do your roast/soak again the day before secondary?

I roasted & soaked them all, used half for boiling. Kept in the cup then used the rest after secondary. i had such little vodka left in the cup (half a shot) that I added it all to the fermenter anyway.

PS: this really *is* one of the best i've made. Mine turned out lighter than intended due to dilution, but it is still very tasty and dangerously drinkable. At 4.5% it is loved by all.

Next time I'm upping the peppers so they come a bit more forward, but I was very happily surprised with how much them did end up coming forward with only 4 peppers per my 4gal batch.

Just made this recipe for my second all grain batch ever. I messed up the order of the hops, hope it turns out. I guess I should limit the beer when brewing...

Did a batch of this per the recipe, one of the best beers I've made- great roasted jalapeno flavor and a light spice flavor. Thanks for the recipe!
