Off topic FYI, and I'm just speaking from what I've heard. But I've heard peppers are one of the adjuncts that like to stick around on all of your equipment.

comment What is the minimum amount of equipment to dabble in All-Grain?
+1 to the brew in a bag response, but my advice is to just get a mash tun and do a 5 gallon batch. It's going to come out great, and you're just going to end up being an all-grain brewer anyway. No need to have minimal equipment in addition to your main setup.

comment When do I add spices to spice up a holiday brew?
+1 for the vodka. The only truly awful beer I've ever made was a vanilla orange ale. I just sliced the vanilla bean open and "dry-hopped" it. I'm not sure if it was the white stuff from the orange which is notorious for being nasty or vanilla bean germs that ruined the beer, but I will always soak any non-hop additions in alcohol if they're going into fermenting beer now.
