I plan on making a chili beer for cinco de mayo and this is the recipe I got so far.
http://hopville.com/recipe/1147495/b...pes/chili-beer

I'd like it to be a low to moderately hopped beer that is smooth. I don't want anything to overpower the flavor of the chili peppers. I plan on roasting the jalapenos before adding them to the boil and fermenter.

The biggest question I have is, how does the percentages of my malt bill look? Will the brown malt be too much?

OK good to me. I'd be very curious to see how this turns out...

I think it looks good, but I've never been a fan of chili-beer. Are you going for something with a dry and clean finish? The best chili beers that I have had were lightly hopped with a clean malt finish. And the chili taste was light on the tongue and there was just some nice heat in the aftertaste. I wonder if the late hop addition will cover some of your chili taste. You could use a more neutral tasting hop with less citrus flavor. I'm just commenting, not really suggesting you change anything.

hmm, too true...I'd prefer it to not be really dry. I dont think I'd mind some hops flavor but definitely dont want it to cover the jalapenos. I updated the recipe. I think it might be a bit better now, I'm not sure about the yeast selection though.
