General Information
Method: Extract

Great flavor without too much spice.  Goes good with chili or nachos.  Thinking about roasting the peppers this time.  Also thinking about oaking 5 gallons.

I put this brew on top of the yeast that was used for an American IPA.  Fermentation was active within an hour.

Procedure

Cut open the Jalapenos before adding them to the boil. Seeds should be included. Jalapenos should only be part of the boil and left out of the fermenter. It is recommended that carbonation volumes go no higher than 2.5 so not to over-enhance the pepper flavor and heat.
