What experience have you had with Morita Black & Red Chipotles and the larger Meco Chipotles. I am planning to lightly spice a porter I brewed and fermented with WLP007 and think the smaller Morita's will lend themselves well with the fruity flavor, but since I have an ounce of each will probably blend. The tea they make is quite tasty. Currently plan to dry-pepper some Porter and leaning towards about 2/3 oz Morita & 1/3 oz Meco. I'll stick them in a hop bag and plan to just put them in my keg and taste every 2-days until I like it then pull them out. How about pre-addition?  Think they can just go in no pre-sanitizing?

I've used the Morita (purple) variety in both beers & meads. They add a light smoky, sweet spiciness to the finished product. I'd recommend adding them using the tea method.  Happy spicing! ;)
