comment Can enough capsaicin adversely effect yeast?
Your beer sounds yummy! If you can't get enough heat you can always try pepper extract: hotsauce.com/16-Million-PURE-Capsaicin-Crystals-2-0ml-p/…

comment What is the scientific explanation behind open fermentation leading to increased esters and yeast flavor & aroma?
Great question! Now I know why my second batch(a Hefeweizen) had so much banana flavor. I used open fermentation back then. I've been trying to replicate that without any luck.

comment Mashing raw spelt/dinkel
I'm guessing I have to mash longer then for both the gelatinization and the starch conversion to take place.

comment Brewing with Tonka Beans
blah, everything good is banned in the US... The amount of coumarin is ridiculously low and you need to eat at least 30 beans before there is any danger. I'm guessing I will need about 2-3 beans for a 5 gallon batch so I should be fine. The Vodka approach sounds like a good idea. How much vodka should I start with?
