I read an article on here about pineapple vodka to which you added a cayenne chillie towards the end of the "cooking" time, now I can't find the instructions....arrrrrrh. Any one have any idea's how long the chillie should be in the brew?..... might have to be a tasting experiment. thankswave

Welcome Jan wave. Sounds like you might be just looking for an excuse to sample the brew whistle. Must admit the only alcohol I have done so far is to make marrow rum.

Hi Jan

Don't leave them in for more than a few weeks, I made some chilli vodka a couple fo christmases ago, it was a present for the Brother in Law, he left them in until he drank it later int he year, nearly killed him - big_laugh makes me laugh just thinking about it

Don't leave them to long, after some time they will devlop a rancid taste- if you ever see the Ukrainian vodka brand Nemiroff that is chillie flavoured,(and has honey in it also) there is always at least one chilli in the bottle, and when fresh it is red, but after a reasonable time it goes brown and eventually almost washed out- at the brown stage it is already rancid, and the vodka is also browner in colour rather than golden from the honey. Most commercial producers use a chillie essential oil extract to give the bite and a few chillies for visual interest.

 Are we having fun yet? I am!
