Any update o the Green Chile Beer? I am making one now, 4 weeks I should have something to taste. Here is what I did.
- Started with 3 Gallons Czech Pilsner in a secondary vessel in final weeks of lagering.
- Added roasted and coarsely chopped (8 ounces) of Anaheim Green Chilies in a cheesecloth bag. Removed stems only.
- I'll leave the peppers in for two weeks, remove the bag, and bottle as usual.
- Two weeks after bottling I'll give it a taste.
FYI, I chopped and added skin, seeds, and all hoping to get a little heat from the seeds and membranes. First attempt, we will see.
Incidentally, I also added a Saaz Hop Tea at the same time. I tasted my lagering beer and it did not have enough Saaz aroma and flavor. I steeped Saaz pellets at 170F for 45 minutes, French pressed it, cooled it and added it along with the roasted peppers.
