Default Million Scoville Unit Bhut Jolokia Hot Cider

Recipe Type: All Grain    Yeast: Red Star Premier Cuvee    Yeast Starter: 1 Tbl yeast nutrient    Additional Yeast or Yeast Starter: 1 Tbl pectic enzyme    Batch Size (Gallons): 2    Original Gravity: 1.053    Final Gravity: 1.001    Boiling Time (Minutes): none    Color: amber    Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 5 days @ 72    Tasting Notes: very hot habanero pepper cider   
This is a habanero pepper cider that has a VERY hot aftertaste. The Bhut Jolokia pepper is rated at 1,000,000 Scoville units! If you like really hot peppers, this is a great brew to accompany buffalo wings or a good chili. Also makes a great batter for spicy wings or onion rings.

Bhut Jolokia Cider

2 small Bhut Jolokia Habanero peppers
2 gal Mussleman's 100% apple cider
1 Tbl yeast nutrient
1 Tbl pectic enzyme
1 pck Red Star premier cuvee yeast
1.2 oz. table sugar (for priming)

Roast the peppers on the grill or in oven, then loosely mash with about two cups of the cider. Add to the primary and swirl generously to get a good suspension of the pepper in the cider. Activate yeast with 2 Tbl sugar, nutrient and pectic enzyme in warm filtered water. Add to carboy and swirl vigorously for 5 minutes to aerate. Airlock it. After fermentation, rack into priming bucket and add 1.2 oz of table sugar, then bottle.

I did a similar red sevina cider that tuned out much milder. I think that if you use a standard jalapeno. there won't be much heat. I'd rate the bhat cider at about the equivalent heat as a little more than straight tabasco.

After you roast the peppers, are you leaving them in the skin when you mash them?

Yes. Roasting brings out the heat and the skin allows the pepper to hold together
