Notes

24 Oz Hershey's Chocolate Syrup, secondary, if needed.

Honey will be late addition, added to primary after 3-4 days of fermentation.

BU/GU ratio 0.6 Final gravity 1.012, ABV 10.25%! Renaming to "Quetzalcoatl" This is out of the park good.

24 hours is long enough for the peppers to steep - 48 is the outside, as a slight bitter flavor begins to develop.
