Red Savina Hot Cider
 
This is a habanero pepper cider that has a moderately hot aftertaste. If you like hot peppers, this is a great brew to accompany buffalo wings or a good chili. Roast the peppers on the grill or in oven, then loosely mash with about two cups of the cider. Add to the primary and swirl generously to get a good suspension of the pepper in the cider. After fermentation, rack into priming bucket and add 1.2 oz of table sugar, then bottle.

Sorry to bump an old thread. Did you remove the seeds and white fleshy stuff from the peppers? Or just use the whole thing (no stem, of course).
