Thanks for the reply. One additional question... I just noticed I ended up adding way too much cocoa powder. When I was reading the recipe I must have gotten the cocoa powder and the cacao nibs mixed up, because I added 4 oz of cocoa powder. So instead of 1/4 cup, 4 oz was probably closer to 2 cups (half of the container). So this is going to be realllly chocolatey. Do you think I should just leave out the cacao nibs? I was really hoping the peanut butter flavor would come through.

hm. hard to say but if it were me: I would just add the suggested amount of cocoa nibs and make a note of each addition (powder and nibs) in my brew log and see how it goes.

Worse case scenario you get more of the chocolate like flavors. I was expecting the cocoa to be a bit more pronounced but they acted like an aroma more than anything. I would suggest that at worse (in addition to the above) your chocolate might overpower the peanut butter. none the less you will end up with a great beer!

I'm new to the brew thing but interested in trying this one out. Could someone convert this recipe to 1or 1.5 gallon batch size for me. I've seen there's software but haven't tried it out yet. Or is it as easy as just doing 20% of everything? Thanks

I can scale it for you this after noon with actual numbers but the easiest thing would be divide ever weight by 5 (or5.5, cant remember how i posted the recipe.) And that will be a pretty goood estimate

Ok sounds good no rush. Ill check your actuals to estimate see what gets tweaked. Are there any special rules when tweaking sizes anyone know of?

For 1 gallon All grain
2.35# 2row
3.2oz flaked oats
5.2oz chocolate malt
1.6oz carapils
1.6oz caramel120L
1.6oz roasted barley
2.6oz of pb2
1oz cocoa nibs
5.7grams of chinook@60
4.3 grams of spalt @60
2.8grams od spalt @10
I have never done such a small amount so i would recomend BIAB method since you could easily out 1.5 gallons on a stove and just steap the grains for an hour at 155. I would drop the cocoa powder and just use a full oz of nibs. Im not gonna lie your better off doing at leats 2 gallons and probably going extract. With such a tiny amount of water i think the efficiency will be too low.
