Sparky's After-Burner Brew

Classification: spiced ale, pepper beer, jalapeno pepper, chili beer, extract

Source: Marc Light ( Issue #483, 8/28/90

The beer is amber, clear, has enough hops for me, and has a great spicy (bordering on hot) aftertaste.



Chop up Jalapeno peppers and boil them with the wort for 30 minutes or so. Strain them out when pouring wort into primary. Rack to secondary about 4 hours after pitching yeast.

Note: When handling jalapenos, be sure to wash hands thoroughly or wear rubber gloves. You'll find out why if you are a contact lens wearer. (I discovered this the hard way---making pickles, not beer.) --- Ed.
