I took a Brewer's Best Cream Ale, added nothing until second week in the secondary. I took about 5 jalapeno's sliced them up and added them to the secondary for a week. Have sampled 2 of them, but they need to sit for at least another week. So far very good!!! I have nothing else to compare them too, but it is a light, crisp, definitely hot beer. Perfect for chips and salsa.
