    I agree with you 100% shortyz. This is my all-time favorite homebrew and wonder why at least

    I guess I waited too long and can't edit my earlier post.I made mine with a whole 12 oz. jar of
    sliced jalapenos because I couldn't find fresh, and added some of the packing juice and vodka.
    I'm not s...

    i'll try that then. seems most many jalapenos did you add? 6, then 7. You'll be

    I kegged this on Saturday and force carbonated it at 30# CO2 until about 30 minutes ago. I
    released the CO2 and put 12# on it to give it a try. It was absolutely phenomenal!!! Great

    The peppers are definately warming this brew up. Lasting warmth at the back of the throat. I
    really don't think that the peppers will stay the full 10 days till I keg. 3-4 days may be the
    hottest I ca...

    I racked to secondary yesterday. SG was 1.004 giving me an abv of 6.1%. It's a little high for

    of the thr...

    in the mix this would not give an accurate reading. Anyone have any experience with
    this?Please, what is t...
