Mash Chemistry and Brewing Water Calculator

Try to keep the chloride-to-sulfate ratio at 2:1. Mash the grains at 152 °F (67 °C) for 60 minutes. Sparge and collect the wort, boil for 60 minutes, adding the hops at the beginning of the boil.

Cool and ferment at 65 °F (18 °C) until specific gravity is unchanged for three days. Prepare the raw peppers by soaking them in brewery cleaner then sanitizing, removing tops, cutting in half, and removing the pith of some jalapeño halves to control the heat as desired. Add the prepared peppers after primary fermentation is complete. When the desired flavor, aroma and heat level is reached (between three and seven days), package either in a keg to about 2.5 volumes of CO2 or in bottles with corn sugar.
