Yes. I did chipotle in the secondary. Used about 1 oz for a 5 gallon batch. Got a lot of the smoke and hotness out of it.

Did you boil the chipotle before you added them?

Probably soaked in vodka. I've seen a lot of threads stating that.

Chilies are fruit, technically.

But they are considered a veggie by the U.S

So is ketchup. Doesn't make it right.

But really, chilies are fruit. If you were a bird, and thus immune to the effects of capsinoids, all you would taste in one is sweet. Which is why they are so spicy. This plant selected it's seed spreader by making itself inedible to everything but birds and humans.

Tomatoes are technically fruit too, but not to the extent that chilies are.
