I am going to try this. What do you guys think about smoking the peppers instead of roasting? I really enjoy a slight smokyness to beers.

I'm going to try smoking them too. I might kick up the heat with a few more peppers too.
I love subtle smoked flavors.

How do you think a Belgian yeast would hold up the heat/smokiness? I think it would add a nice depth of flavor, with the spicy phenols. I'm thinking along the lines of a Saison with background smoked pepper flavor, and a fair amount of heat front.

I Think wlp550 would help the peppers come through. I would stay on the lower temp side to avoid any of the banana flavors.

I was going to use a yeast I harvested from Boulevard's Smokestack Saison. It's really earthy, which should go well with the smoked undertones. In the next couple weeks, I'll have to brew this up.

Wonder how long it takes for the peppers in secondary? I've had my roasted peppers in the bottle for 3 days and it smells very peppery, but it tastes mellow and very light on the heat.

Will more time give more heat and pepper flavor? Or only more peppers?

I left mine in for 5 days but I put 5 peppers in the carboy it turned out perfect not to hot but you get the heat and can taste the peppers

Thanks man, I put mine in exactly 5 days ago. 2 days ago it tasted pretty good but with a soft heat and nice peppery flavor. I don't know if the heat will get any hotter without putting more peppers in there

I'm also looking at crash cooling in primary and adding gelatin to clear without removing peppers or racking to secondary. Mainly doing this for carboy conservation but also a little for lazyness! Anybody think that's a bad idea?

Oh, and one more thing. I just discovered yesterday that I didn't have any corn in this brew. Went to the LHBS and asked the girl if she remembered putting it in there when she helped me get it together because when I got home I didn't see the maize in the grains. She told me that she did indeed forget to add the corn.

So, now I'm contemplating throwing a bit of malto in there at bottling because I can't think of anything else that might help it like the corn would now. Anybody else know how I can try to get that crisp corn taste now??
