That's an interesting recipe, gird. What do you cook it in?

I throw the raisins and peppers in to a five gallon bucket in a paint strainer then pour 3 gallons of boiling water (with inverted sugar) over. wait until room tempish then add k-met and pectic enzyme wait 12 hrs then add the yeast and other ingredients. Stir twice daily for 7 to 12 days or until 1.005 sg then rack and squeeze bag with rubber gloves. I bottle in beer bottles so that i can use a cup in marinade and drink the rest. Definitely a sipping wine. I have upped the sg to about 1.100 and like that as well. If you remove the seeds and the white stuff it is not very hot. If you want hot leave the seeds and the white stuff and up the pepper count. We have tried 10 to 20 peppers per gallon and find 16 with out the seeds to be the best for us.

Jack says it is best right away. We like it after it has been in the bottle for 4-6 months. It seems to get hotter.

Just started mine last night night with enough honey to hit 14% and half a medium sized scotchbonnet. Will back sweeten to 1.01 once done I think.

1 1/2 tsp acid blend
1/2 tsp pectic enzyme

I would like to hear how the others are as well.

How hot? Is it a sipping wine or strictly a spaghetti sauce?

Mine is still fermenting, or at least off gassing so haven't tasted it yet. I'm working my way through another 2l bottle of cider so once done ill get it racked, stabalised and backsweetened and see how it is.

I dont have the biggest pepper tolerance so my stuff tastes plenty hot to me. Its a creeping heat too, not too bad until 2 seconds later and then you are breathing fire after a sip. When you use yours as a marinade, what do you marinade? I'm wondering if mine would work for that purpose.

Traditionally, you marinate meat.
