I left mine at the default. My effciencey has increased about 10% compared from the LBHS grist

Miguel, I used habanero so it was mostly heat. If I do try it again, I will use a more flavorful pepper with less capsaicin, such as a Anaheim or Fresno chili. Also I didn't need to sanitize the peppers, the vodka does that.

I would advise against putting peppers directly in your boil, you have no way to gauge the heat. What I do is make a tincture. I chop up peppers, and add to a small jar of vodka. Let is sit for a few weeks. Then you can do some taste tests to gauge your heat. I used an eye dropper and added from 1 to 5 drops at bottling time to each bottle, and marked then accordingly. I still have that small jar of habanero juice years later, a little bit goes a long way.

All those pro brewers out there using open fermenters don't worry.
Take a cue from them.

No big ting bruddah!

That's what I was thinking Carl. That's why I didn't freak out, and relaxed with a homebrew made with only home grown hops.

I brewed a simple pale ale yesterday. Put the bucket in ferm chamber, but forgot to put liquid in the airlock. The fermentation chamber is a brand new chest freezer than hasn't has anything it really, except for a bucket. So I'd assume the envirment in there is very sanitary. It was probably about 12 hours with out liquid in the airlock. I used a starter of ECY12, if that makes a difference. Should I worry?

If it wasn't for Mr. Beer, I wouldn't be here either.
