It is common for beer lovers, particularly those who brew their own, to check their beer’s label and study the content. Some ingredients, like milk or fruits, can certainly point to the brewers’ creativity, but the use of chili peppers surely reflects the brewer’s preference for the hot stuff. If you want to give your homemade brew a kick, a dash of chili pepper could be the answer.
Caution: Hot Zone
In his article for Brew Your Own magazine, Scott Russell says there are many cardinal elements to consider before you even go about making your own chili beer. One main point is that the chili content must not overpower your brewed malt and hops. The beer itself should be well-brewed and can stand their ground.
