Beer Recipes / Using cinnamon in the mash
« on: September 16, 2011, 07:20:30 PM »
Does anyone use a teaspoon of cinnamon in their mash?  Does this work to add head retention?  Does this do anything else?  Or is this practice just an old-Papazian's tale?

this now ties in with another active thread "what i like most about brewing"  Not giving the government tax revenue on all the beer i don't buy because i am brewing it myself. 8)
but didn't you give the government taxes when you bought the ingredients to make the beer?  perhaps not if you grew some or all of them yourself, but even then you'd have to pay some taxes for growing supplies and equipment (and water???)

Ingredients / Brewing with Chili Extract
« on: August 05, 2010, 09:43:16 PM »
Has anyone ever brewed with chili extract?  I just ate some dark chocolate "with a hint of chili."  It took about 30 seconds to a minute for the chili to hit, and then it was just a gentle warming on the back of the tongue that lingered for a few minutes after the chocolate was gone.  The package said it used "chili extract".  I would love to make a dark chocolate beer do the same thing. 

There are some CRAZY hot looking things on this web page which look like good candidates to try in a chocolate beer:

Has anyone tried use of chili extract in their beer before, and if so, what "rating" was it and how much did you use?  Any other tips, experience, and advice is appreciated.

FYI: Doing a search for chili extract on this forum didn't seem to come up with anything at all, to my surprise).
