I have been brewing chili beers for the last 18 years. My first chili beer took 3rd at a home brew competition. Many types of chilies can be used, fresh or dried. Depending on the type and amount used will determine how much of a bite the beer will have. The smokiness of the chipotles will complement the base porter recipe. Enjoy with BBQ, burgers, or spicy Oriental foods.
