Urgent! Red chillies finished ::Is ginger possible in the tincture?

Dear Kelley, I just bought your book, I have no access to any hot red chillies in India, theyre out of season and tasteless right now, we have hot green ones and excellent ginger. can i use green chillies instead of red. It isnt clear to me whether i can make the tincture with ginger and garlic? You said you prefer fresh ginger. Please reply soon.. for my moms sake -Warm regards -- Gagan
