I "dry hopped" on top of a Jalapeņo. Will the pepper effect the yeast or will I need to repitch when bottling?

I did this with serrano chiles last year and did not have to repitch at bottling.

I don't think yeast are sensitive to capsaicin.

Friend of mine adds a slice of the pepper at bottling.. Its for sure a wild tasting beer. You can taste the Jalapeņo very prevalent..

I'm sure it will be fine. Good luck on the finish.
