It’s starting to get pretty darn cold out there. So we thought we should share one of our favorite Hot Chili Beer recipes to help heat things up.
One of the biggest ongoing debates in the world of home brewers when it comes to chili beers is when you should add the chili peppers to your beer. Some suggest that you add chili peppers directly to the boil, but chilis added this early might not impart the desired amount of flavor to your beer. Others will advise you to add peppers as though you were “dry spicing” your beer either in your secondary fermenter, or even directly to your keg or bottles. Everyone has their own personal preferences, but we recommend adding any peppers to your beer when you pitch your yeast for a good balance of flavors.
To get started, you'll need the equipment from a basic Home Brewing Beer Kit
which you can get for $39.95.
