I'm thinking of trying this soon. I have an extra carboy that needs attention.

Any thoughts/advice/cautions?

BTW Here's the Link to ALOT of recipes!

Jalapeno Wine
16 large jalapenos (for less heat, use 8 jalapenos)
1 lb golden raisins chopped or minced
2 lbs finely granulated sugar
1 1/2 tsp acid blend
1/2 tsp pectic enzyme
Water to one gallon
1 crushed Campden tablet
3/4 tsp yeast nutrient
Pasteur Champagne Yeast

Wearing rubber gloves, wash jalapeno peppers and cut off stems. Slice length-ways and remove seeds for mild heat, leave them in for very hot wine. Place peppers in blender or food chopper with 2 cups water and chop coarsely. Separately, chop or mince raisins. Put raisins in nylon straining bag and, over primary, pour chopped jalapenos in with raisins. Tie bag and leave in primary. Add remaining ingredients except for pectic enzyme and yeast. Stir well to dissolve sugar. Cover primary and set aside 12 hours. Add pectic enzyme, recover and set aside another 12 hours. Add yeast and recover. Stir daily for 7 days. Wearing rubber gloves, squeeze nylon bag. Transfer liquor to secondary and fit airlock. Ferment to absolute dryness (45-60 days). Rack into clean secondary and refit airlock. Rack twice more, 30 days apart. Wait final 30 days and rack into bottles. Can use or drink immediately, but will age if you add 1/8 tsp of tannin to ingredients.

I'm a huge fan of hot food, but I simply cannot stand pepper-drinks. Except for some pepper vodka in my bloody mary.

Jack Keller is a well known US Wine Maker and really knows his stuff!

He also does a Garlic Wine for cooking with - I've fancied making that but worry it'll taint my kit with garlic oils forever!

Tried a jalapeno beer once. There's something wrong when a cool beverage burns your mouth..

But the burn means you have to drink more cool beverage to counter the burn.

I think ir you have a bung the right size for a gallon bottle to fit your airlock in try to make in a gallon size if not do what my neighbor did use a ballon with a pin hole. I'd cover with a cloth till yeast activity calms down.

I have a small - 3 gallon bin that I bought some cookies in - food grade plastic.
I am planning on a Habenero Mead sometime in the future - and will not use any of my other wine making kit - stainless steel spoons and such, I will have to float my hydrometer, and been that is glass - should not retain any flavors - but a few feet of racking hose, and discard after use
