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 head, excellent lacing and the taste was very, very good. I'm gonna keep this one as a regular. The burn at the back of the throat was pleasing...

I'm going to brew this again for an up coming competition. Hopefully I can nail the peppers this time.

I didnt do a cream ale, I used edworts haus pale for a base then tried to get the pepper flavor right.

I added a couple roughly chopped jalapenos to the last 5 minutes of the boil then 3 jalapenos, 1 tbsp of red pepper flakes, and a half a habanero to the secondary for about 2 weeks. the heat is perfect.

I took a Brewer's Best Cream Ale, added nothing until second week in the secondary. I took about 5 jalapeno's sliced them up and added them to the secondary for a week. Have sampled 2 of them, but they need to sit for at least another week. So far very good!!! I have nothing else to compare them too, but it is a light, crisp, definitely hot beer. Perfect for chips and salsa.

Has anyone been bold enough to add the soaked vodka as well? All I can see it doing is boosting the alcohol and giving more of a kick. I tried a few drops and it is pretty decent.

I have just bottled a roasted jalapeno honey red ale and I was curious, for those of you that have experience with pepper beers, how does the pepper spice and flavor change with age in the bottle? Thanks for any info
