Fellow homebrewer informed me as a precaution. Said that the heat increases with age.

I do not know if it is true or not either, but took it as a possibility. Might be due to other flavor characteristics decreasing, and the capsicum being left as the predominate flavor.

Do not know for certain, just my amateur guess.

Maybe capsicum is a self replicating molecule and it consumes other compounds in the beer and creates more capsicum?

Rhody...
Sorry, actually capsicum is the plant genus, capsaicin is the compound. Knew it seemed both right and wrong at the same time.

Wikipedia says this about capsaicin in beverages...

Recently beverage products are emerging with capsaicin as an active ingredient. The first two capsaicin beverages to hit the market are Prometheus Springs Elixirs launched in 2007 and Sweet16 launched in 2011. It is common for people to experience pleasurable and even euphoriant effects from ingesting capsaicin. Folklore among self-described "chiliheads" attributes this to pain-stimulated release of endorphins, a different mechanism from the local receptor overload that makes capsaicin effective as a topical analgesic. In support of this theory, there is some evidence that the effect can be blocked by naloxone and other compounds that compete for receptor sites with endorphins and opiates.

Hi Everyone,

I'm looking for someone who would be interested in joining my brewery venture. I am really looking for a manufacturing engineer or similar who could help in the construction of a brewery. Would also like to hear from other like-minded entrepreneurs.

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Nick

My habanero IPA got first place at the local brewery's homebrewing contest, out of ~120 entries. The prize is having it brewed at the brewery and being served on tap at their pub.

It is not too hot, it finishes nicely. Everyone apparently thought so too.

Very nice...for more taps and kegs, I've seen people use a chest freezer. Temp controllers are sold to keep them at correct temps, and you can fit many more kegs in. Course with up to 6-8 taps possible, you will need to brew a different beer for each, but that is not a problem.

Tis my man fridge. On tap right now is cream soda. Super happy with the results, can't wait to fill em with beer.

I think I can fit about 3 more kegs inside if I really wanted to, especially with the tanks external. I have some plans to paint this fridge up here in a week or two. Thinking something along the lines of Banksy graf work. I'll keep ya'll posted.

OMG. I got this Christmas present from an old girl friend (dated 40+years ago). She bought it from Bed Bath and Beyond. Go figure.



How simple can you get?



It will probably give me the bug to learn how to brew (again); as I set here drinking "Wheat State Golden".

Thinking about brewing a barley wine for the first brew of the year, looking at getting up to 13% ABV with this one. Simcoe and nugget hops.

I had dinner with colleagues at Cambridge Brewing Company in Cambridge, MA. The seven of us order two towers (~84 oz) for the table. One was their IPA, and the other some kind of lager.

Next time I want to check out the Bannatyne’s Scotch Ale and their stouts and porters.
