Although it may seem a bit unusual, the dark, rich flavors of porter are the perfect pairing for chipotle peppers. The peppers have a dark, dried fruit character that draws out the flavors of crystal malt, while the smokiness of the peppers adds depth and complexity to smoked malt. Add in subtle notes of roast and bittersweet chocolate delivered with a spicy kick and you've got yourself a bold brew that’s sure to raise a few eyebrows.
Enjoy a recipe that clinched the Silver Medal at the highly competitive 2013 National Homebrew Competition.

5.0 / 5.015 ReviewsFantastic flavor combinations!From the moment I opened the grains I knew this was a porter with full flavors. Creating the wort left the house smelling wonderful. The smoky chipotles included with the kit were extraordinary. I left the chipotle crumbles in for a 3 days primarily because of my love of spicy foods but also to extract as much of the smoky aroma from them as well. A great sipping beer with heavy punches of heat (if wanted) and full bodied flavors!June 26, 2016So good I just ordered another kit...This is our favorite kit so far. Makes a great tasting brew if having a bit of heat in the mix is your thing. I had skeptical family and neighbors try it (not beer drinkers) and they were very surprised at how wonderful it tastes. The best part is bragging about the fact that this beet is something unique enough that you would be hard pressed to find something similar on store shelves.September 18, 2015Great Kit!Brewed it for a local charity Chili Fest that had a home brew competition and I won! Everyone loved it. Will definitely make this one again!October 1, 2015Lost of flavor.My absolute favorate. Wish it had less smoke and more chocolate flavor. Will have to play around with recipe to perfect, but seriously IRS amazing the it is.May 21, 2017Purchased
6 months agoAssume brewGreat brew kit the yeast was fresh. Flavor is great so far.June 5, 2016A fine brewI have brewed this kit multiple times as it has become a family favorite. It produces a full-bodied, flavorful porter with a "grace note" of the chipotle in the finish.September 16, 2016Muy bien echo!This is my second batch of this porter. Two things I did different from the first is using three muslin bags to hold the grains and used all of the peppers. Brewed on 5/1/16 as my 34th batch. Got an OG of 1.068. on 5/21 I put the peppers in the primary fermenter. The first batch wasn't as hot as I would have liked it so for this one I broke up all the peppers and put them in a bag along with the seeds. Three days later I decided to bottle and had an FG of 1.016. The hydrometer sample was out of this world: smokey, great porter taste, not a thin porter like the first one, and some heat. Now, two months later it is excellent. There is a smokey taste on the front end followed by a rich chocolaty-coffeey porter taste, and then heat on the back of the throat after it goes down. The head is tan and the beer is black. This is a beer to be sipped and enjoyed.August 3, 2016Best one yetPrepped yeast starter with the liquid wyeast 36 hours on stir plate. Three weeks in primary. Three weeks secondary. Suspended two seeded chipoltle peppers for about two days in secondary. Probably could have added another. OG 1.064 / FG 1.015 = 6.43% abv.Ended up being a very nice porter - nicest brew I have made so far. Clean, creamy, balanced, slight heat. Gave a bunch to different friends who all raved about it.December 24, 2015Personal Favorite!I like this one so much I brewed a second 5-gallon batch before the first one was gone. Also popular with family and friends. Great smoked porter and the peppers give it just the right amount of zing going down the gullet. I used three or four of the peppers (after de-seeding), put them in a muslin bag and dropped in to secondary about two weeks prior to kegging. I WILL brew this one again (and again) this Fall.June 18, 2016Smoke Bomb With a twistGreat Flavor 7%ABV which seems to be common with this kit. I added 3oz of dark Chocolate to the boil and it enhanced the richness and gave it a pleasant aroma. I highly recommend this to anybody that likes Porters.April 19, 2016
Browse 2 questions Browse 2 questions and 9 answersDo I only need one pk of dry yeast for this beer (Safale US-05), based on O.G. of 1.066?BEST ANSWER: I use a 1 liter starter for this beer. I use Beersmith to determine how much yeast to use. You don't want to over pitch or under pitch.
Cheers!After cutting the peppers and removing seeds should the peppers be sanitized in vodka or another way?BEST ANSWER: Shame on me I assumed the peppers being roasted and sealed would be ok . I infused the peppers without sanitizing them. The beer came out fantastic. I did a little research and baking the peppers at 200 degrees for 15 minutes should do the trick. I suppose soaking the peppers in vodka or rum would work
