Crushed Red Pepper Flakes IPA?
Does anyone have any experience with crushed red pepper flakes in a beer? I was fiddling around with an APA recipe and got it in my head that red peppers would be delicious.
I was thinking about possibly "dry hopping" this beer with red pepper flakes. From what I've read in other threads, more boiling=more heat? I'd like to add just a small taste of red pepper. Any thoughts?
