Seems based on your post tho, that you have actually never had a problem with age...
You’re right it doesn't stay in stock long. But I do stash a few beers from each batch for comparisons sake and I always bottle some bombers that I save for special occasions. I think it mellows out a little, but negligible. Personally I think it gets better with age. (Good luck keeping on the shelf) Bottle conditioning for me is 6 to 8 weeks. Always having a beer going in a carboy keeps me patient.

Sundowner hit a grand slam with this recipe!

Our local HB club just had a meeting at a LHBS and I picked up a BB cream ale kit. One of the members brought a pepper ale that was really good. Not a strong pepper flavor but a slight lingering heat on the back of the palate. I'm growing habanero, scotch bonnet & jalapenos. This is inspiring me to add a tincture to 1/2 the batch at bottling time. I'm thinking 1-2 scotch bonnets &/or habaneros soaked in some vodka for a week or two. I may just use one of each of the three! Thanks to the OP and everyone else who's commented with suggestions. The only thing I'm doing different with the kit is adding 1 oz of citra hops late for the mango/citrus profile. The non-hot portion will be to share with folks who can't take the heat (yet continue to bug me in the kitchen!)

Just brewed this recipe a few weeks ago and think it will be killer! Aging in the keg now waiting for space in the kegerator. Thanks for this one!

Interested in your citra results!

Damn, I accidently added the Jalapenos at 60mins and didn't notice/take them out until 28 mins left. Does anyone know if this will have an affect on the spicy factor of the beer?

I entered this beer in a competition and tied for 4th place overall out of 220 entries at the Iowa State Fair. It scored 40 out of 50 and got 1st place in 21a Spice-Herb-Vegetable. What a shocker considering I thought it was almost to hot to be session able.

See post 194-196 on page 20.

Did you take the seeds out of the jalapeños before you baked them?

I did not remove the seeds. I sliced the jalapeños lengthwise into 1/4" strips and baked them seeds and all

Tapped this keg the other day. I really had no idea what to expect. I've never had any type of pepper beer. I really like it, something different. If you make it you must like the taste of roasted jalapeños. Mine doesn't have any heat when you drink it, but def. has the flavor. I guess the vodka must take the flavor out, but leave the heat behind, because I bit into one of the jalapeños after it had been siting in the vodka and it was one of the hottest I've ever had. Thanks for the recipe.
