Chocolate peanut butter stout

Postby whitedj » Mon Apr 01, 2013 9:10 pm

I stumbled across this recipe and thought it may sound fairly good. I was wondering if anyone has brewed something similar?

My initial thought is to increase the peanut butter and cacao nibs

I'm planning on brewing this recipe this coming weekend.  I've been planning it as a beer to bring to one of our events. On Apr 1, 2013 10:10 PM, "whitedj" <brew-recipes@crbeernuts.org (brew-recipes@crbeernuts.org)> wrote:

Midwest Supplies sold a kit for this before. I assume they still do.

I'm starting with the Midwest kit as a basis, changing it just enough that I'll be able to serve it as "chocolate covered beer nuts". I had the original recipe at NHC in San Diego on club night.  It was pretty tasty. On Apr 2, 2013 9:25 AM, "Matt F" <brew-recipes@crbeernuts.org (brew-recipes@crbeernuts.org)> wrote:

Did you use the PB2? My wife has tried it, I have not. Looks pretty straightforward. Gotta try it when you get it done.

I'm using PB2.  I'll be adding 2 jars tomorrow along with 1/2 cup of organic cocoa. On Apr 12, 2013 10:53 PM, "johnnyik" <brew-recipes@crbeernuts.org (brew-recipes@crbeernuts.org)> wrote:
Did you use actual peanut butter? There is a product at HyVee called PB2 that is powdered peanut butter. Reduced oils but all the flavor. Might be the way to go...

My wife has graciously volunteered to be a quality control inspector for this beer! She's itching for me to make my double chocolate hazelnut porter again, but says a chocolate peanut butter beer sounds quite tasty!

I brewed this back in November and have only tried a couple bottles. I tried to make my own peanut butter powder but it didn't work out so well. It is super carbonated so guessing I did something wrong and had one bottle blow up. Haven't opened another one since new years maybe and think it is about time to try another bottle. What was left of the ones I did open I did like. Darts for me is going to be over as of tonight so I will try to bring some to the next meeting (actually it is not over but I am playing out of Bricks so that should increase the meetings I can make) and you can tell me everything I did wrong ;).
