After a certain point of heat....there doesn't seem to be a point.
It's like complimenting a band, because their loud.

Grant Achatz developed a way to extract the capsicum from chiles and make a 0 Scoville chile 'liquor' so you can taste the pure flavor of the fruit.... but it requires a $10,000 roto-vap machine.
Warning: the distillate of habanero is the most contaminating of any we do. The flavor gets into all the glassware and lubricant in the system. The entire rotovap has to be broken down and cleaned in an ultrasonic bath after a habanero run. Because of this we do a lot of it in a row and then don’t make it for a while. You also need to be extremely careful about boil-over on this product. Even a little boil-over will make your distillate spicy and ruin the effect.
