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

Be sure to pasteurize the Jalapeno going into secondary. Leave in secondary 14 days, add gelatin 3 days before bottling and cold crash in fridge to clarify beer. It will be crystal clear. Bottle condition 21 days, chill, enjoy.

This beer has just the right amount of heat..and a beautiful nose of fresh cut Jalapeno peppers..

Cold going down...then a little heat!
