I'm looking for a recipe for a peanut butter beer- preferably not a porter or stout, more cream ale type...

Thanks!

How about just searching for a base style / roast up peanuts, lightly crush them, add them to secondary for two weeks. Make the style light so that the peanut oils can shine through. Good Luck!

Not sure if this is a great idea. I would suspect that the peanut in the oils will kill any sort of head in your beer.

Disclaimer: I haven't tried any such thing before.

Me either, What if he added cara-pils to give better head retension?

There is a product called PB2 that is a dehydrated peanut butter. I've seen threads where they successfully used it.

I'm thinking about doing a Peanut Ale for my next brew.

Where should I start in trying to develop this type of recipe?

I have used PB2 successfully for a peanut butter porter.

Use two jars of PB2 (some GNC carry it, but check first), in last 10min. of boil...

I had no head issues with the beer, but I did add .5# of instant oats to be safe. Oils were never a issue...I made sure though I got all the PB from the boil kettle into the fermenter...let it sit for 4 weeks, cold crash and racked off...

You might want to use a hop sock to keep the hops separated from the trub going into the fermenter...

The PB will come through as the last part of the taste...if you want it more forward add 1oz./5gal of PB extract (cake supply stores or ebay).

Hope this helps...

I did a small 3 gallon test batch of peanutbutter cup porter using 3 oz of pb2 and 3 oz of the powdered chocolate they sell as well and let it sit for 2 weeks the racked it on top of the same amount for anther 3 weeks and cold crashes it and bottled it. Head retention was good and there is a Med Pb taste to finish out the beer and chocolate flavor in the middle. Its honestly is not to bad.
