Hello. We got an awful lot of home grown chillies and thought about making my own Chilli Schnaps :| Where can I get the alcohol for this in Lewes without getting the wrong poisonous kind? Any tipps for (Chilli) Schnaps making?

Watch out for the Fallen Angel brewery at the Farmers market - they do at least two chilli ales - one more of a lager really - both excellent - but beware they are bottle conditioned so you need to know what you are doing when you open them - happy drinking

PS They have a range of about 12 beers at any one time ALL bottle conditioned ALL excellent - I have never had a bad bee from them - Battle way I believe - some very sexy labels too (believe it or not)

Chili Schnaps.. evil green in colour from deadly hot green chilies. Hope to get it just right - like the home made one (secret recipe ) I drank recently. Down, followed by hot flashes and 30 minutes of P A I N . Must try the Chili beer, thanks for the tip Lopster. So, where do I get the alcohol for the Schnaps? Heard about the Vodka option but I'm not too much of a Vodka friend.

You can get the Fallen Angel chilli beer (Called Black Death I believe) from the chilli shop in Brighton Marina, along with a huge range of other chilli-related products. The beer is a fantastic hangover cure.

Using a spirit is probably the best way to go about it. If not, it's a bit more than just "adding" alcohol. You could ferment/distill the chillis & juices, there are tons of online brewing/fermenting/distilling tutorials you could look up.
Have fun!

I'm very happy for you then. How are you going to use it? more
I like the walk along the ouse to Hamsey church, the view from the top of the Castle, Pells pool, the antique shops and boot fair, the lion in the window of the 15c bookshop, keere street
