WARNING: Kettle losses > 2% detected which throw off OG calculation for extract/partial mash recipes in batch target 'fermentor' mode. Solution: Reduce kettle losses, misc losses and hops absorption in equipment profile, OR set batch target to 'kettle' and do a full wort boil. See batch target FAQ.

Notes

I removed the seeds and inner membrane from (1) chile and minced it to about 3/16" squares. This was added at the 20 min mark of the boil and left in the wort for primary fermentation.
I did not make a starter for the liquid yeast because of the smaller batch size.
This batch was in primary for 4 days.
Soaked .75oz diced Habanero Chiles (2 large peppers) in Vodka for 20 minutes to sanitize and added Chiles and Vodka to the secondary. This batch was in secondary for 14 days.

This beer came out exactly as planned. Big pepper aroma, subtle pepper flavor complements the Kolsch nicely, with some nice but not overwhelming heat on the finish.
