Re: Rogue Chipotle ale Recipe ???

I enjoy the Rogue Chipotle Ale and have done some searching for a beer recipe with chilies in it. I have not tried this yet, but I did come assross this recipe. Also, you can PM Tankdeer. I think he had a recipe as well. Good luck and keep me posted.

Qts Water Per Lbs Grain: 1.35 - Before Additional Infusions


I think next time I make this I'm going to try it with WLP051 and drop the
mash temp a couple degrees to compensate. See how I like that.

I think the only changes I've made then are the yeast (Changed to WLP051) and mash temp. To convert it to extract simply switch out the 2-row with enough light DME to hit the target OG.

Re: Rogue Chipotle ale Recipe ???

I was going to chime in here. But it looks like my recipe beat me to it! ;)

It was inspired by the Rogue beer, but after I actually think mine is better. Made it to round two of the nationals last year and got some good feedback from Randy Mosher.

I haven't brewed it in a while, but I need to. :cheers:

Re: Rogue Chipotle ale Recipe ???

When you state 6 units of chilis.....what is that? Six ounces, six chilis, six pounds?

Please elaborate on the exact nature of the chipotle addition. Dried, canned, fresh?

I understand the beer part of the formula but the spice has me confused.

Thanks for any help you can provide!

Re: Rogue Chipotle ale Recipe ???

It has to be six peppers, and even that's a bit much for my taste. I used two sliced jalapeños (about 4" long) in a porter and thought that might even have been too much, but maybe chipotles impart less heat since they're dried?

My problem is that I have never seen chipotles that weren't already cooked and canned in adobo sauce.
Chipotle means that the jalepeno peppers have been smoked, not fresh.

Now what?

Re: Rogue Chipotle ale Recipe ???

Oh man, find a Mexican grocery if you can. The difference between whole fresh peppers (any kind of pepper) and the ones from a can is huge. If you do have to go with the canned ones, I can't imagine being rehydrated will make a whole lot of difference in terms of flavor.

Worse comes to worst, I suspect you only have to wait a day or so before tankdeer chimes back in. :wink:

Re: Rogue Chipotle ale Recipe ???

6 dried and smoked chipotles (no such thing as fresh ones). Not in adobo sauce. Around here they're not too hard to find. There are lots of various dried peppers in the ethnic food isle of most grocery stores. Or find a Mexican grocery as mentioned.

The heat from the dried peppers is substantially less than the fresh ones or even the canned ones in adobo. 6 is what I have come up with after a few different test brews and it's always very well received.

Re: Rogue Chipotle ale Recipe ???

Great thread. I'm planning my spring brew calendar and would like to experiment with a chipotle/smoke recipe. I have a couple quesions:

Do you remove the seeds from the pepper or throw the whole thing in the kettle?

Do you get much smokyness from them? I was thinking I'd add some smoked malt (not peat) for some subtle smoke up front. Maybe this would be too much?

Re: Rogue Chipotle ale Recipe ???

I try and remove the seeds because they get all over the place, but I don't really go overboard. And yeah, you get a pretty fair amount of smoke from the peppers

Re: Rogue Chipotle ale Recipe ???

Do you rehydrate those smoked chipotles before cutting the seeds out? i'm considering smoking my own or using some i grew this year

Re: Rogue Chipotle ale Recipe ???

Never bothered rehydrating them. The way I figure, they do that just fine in the kettle. No reason to add extra water.

Re: Rogue Chipotle ale Recipe ???

one important thing i forgot to ask (and thought of now that i just started brewing...)

did you leave the chipotles in the fermenter, or did you strain them out when transfering it to the carboy from the brewpot?

Re: Rogue Chipotle ale Recipe ???

i ended up leaving 4 peppers in the primary. just racked it to secondary


MAN is it good. the spice level is perfect and there's plenty of smoke. i actually modified the recipe a bit, putting in .50 lbs chocolate malt total, and swapped out the 9.5 pounds of pale malt for 6 lbs gold LME and 1 lb pale DME


can't wait to try this in about a month, after bottle conditioning
