This looks really good. Did you add your first set of chilis to the primary and your second set to the secondary?

All the chili's were added to the primary in 2 stages. Originally it was going to be a red chili ale, but the heat and chili flavor was not there and green chili's were added.

Sounds good, thanks! I'm thinking about using jalapenos instead, but I'm not sure yet.

brewing tomorrow. Love the green chili beer. have some roasted hatch green chili's. thinking I'll put some in the boil ( @5 min) and make a tincture w/ the rest w/ some cheap vodka. I'll pour one beer at bottling and use a dropper until i get the right amt of heat...then scale up for my 5 gal batch......thoughts?

I am interested to hear your results. I have not done the dropper method yet, but have 1 beer coming up that I want to try it on. Hard to find that line of hot & too hot plus IMO you have to still taste the base beer as well. Good Luck!

Yeah. I had a friend recommend the dropper method. Eliminates the potential for bacteria to develop in the secondary and ensures that you don't cross that too hot line. We'll see. I'm still not sure if I'm gonna put any in the boil or not. I guess I've got a couple hours to decide.

Brewed the base beer up Friday and pitched starter of white labs California V. Fresh chilis in the fridge and looks like a mix of red and green.

Edit 9/23/12: 1 Red and 3 Green added on 9/15/12. Heat there but Chile aroma and flavor low. Added 4 green 9/21/12.

Green chile aroma then some chile taste with base beer followed by heat bite lingering to the finish.
