    Hah.... I'll "first wort pepper"..... so I don't mess up the ph....
    then some more with 15-min. left in the boil to get the heat.....

    and I always split them in half...... and roast them at 350, 'til they start to blacken around the edges....

    I may put one pepper in the mash and then a pepper in the boil around the 15 minute mark.

    Just had another thought for the boil I am debating between leaving it whole or splitting, removing the seeds and the membrane from the inside.

    too spicy! you'd never be able to get enough flavor without the heat overpowering everything.

    I'm thinking bananas or chilis with jalapeno's might even roast to add at some point.

    true, but they have such a great flavor, just take a chomp out of one, it's really great, then the heat hits you and hurt happens.... and a lot of mucous.
    But if you could time it right so you get the flavor and not much of the heat it's a really great pepper to use for this.

    I feel like IBU calculations could be used with scoville units with out much conversion. Maybe I'm completely wrong on that, I don't really know how peppers give out their hotness to a wort, compared to AA's.
