Yep, ~27 days from production to bottling/kegging.

what about just tossing the little bit of habanero into primary after the fermentation has finished, and then racking to keg for dry hops after ~5 days? assuming you're not repitching the yeast, any drawbacks to that?

Congratulations on winning your award. I will have to add this to the list of beers to brew.

Congrats on gold! Curious whether the winning batch had 1.4g per gallon per recipe or 2.8g per your preference.

Ya know, the last few times I've made this, I've gone by taste rather than weight.

I'll start with ~3g per gallon and let it sit for ~5 days. If it's not hot enough, I'll add more (including some serranos for a slightly different heat/flavor/aroma) and check it every couple of days until it is where I want it, or even just a bit hotter. A warm, young, uncarbed sample will be hotter than a cold, carbed, aged one.

I'll get around to updating the first post soon to reflect some new information I've learned over the years of making this!

Looks great thanks for sharing. Do you have approximate ibus or AA for your hop additions?

It's varied every time I've made it but it's usually around:

Amarillo - 9.2% AA
Columbus - 15.3% AA
Northern Brewer - 9.6% AA
Magnum - 15% AA
Warrior - 18% AA
Crystal - 4.1%AA
Centennial - 8.9% AA
Simcoe - 13.2% AA

I updated the original post to include some minor changes to the hops and some additional advice on pepper use.
