    +1 for cutting down or removing the crystal. 2 pounds in any 5 gallon recipe is too much. Think

    bitterness and ...

    I have no idea. I'm considering buying a keg at this point. It seems much more efficient.

    yeast, what grist, what mash temperature, pitch rate, oxygenation, fermentation
    temp?Personally, I'm not a...

    Somebody has to ask- you've been living in an apartment with beer soaked carpet that you
    haven't cleaned in the past 6 months? That has to have been nasty.

    I've made pale/amber ales with jalapenos, poblanos, and serranos. My advice would be to make a
    low IBU standard pale or amber ale recipe, and add a couple of seeded jalapenos and a serrano
    to the boil...
