Beer Works in Boston had a PB Porter a while ago. Perhaps you can give them a ring and see if they can offer some advice?

Good advice so far. Thanks!
I can tell this is going to be a paranoid brew.
I'll probably go insane before the beer is ever done.

it's best to just bite the bullet and go insane before you even start. procrastinating on that won't get you anywhere.

To each his own. Generally, almost every "crazy" beer additive I see people post here about sounds at least reasonably good to me. And I like peanut butter.

But peanut butter beer? Did you taste a peanut butter porter at some point? I'm tryingin to imagine where the idea would even come from.

Kindof like the first person to eat an egg. Must've been *really* hungry.

"Hey Pablo, You see that cow over there? I'm going to grab its tit, stroke it, and drink whatever comes out."

and now it builds healthy bones... go figure...

My chocolate porter turned out pretty well. I added a whole pound of dark chocolate to the boil. I was very careful when I siphoned to the primary, the secondary, the bottling bucket, and into the bottles, not to siphon the top layer of the beer. The oils form a oil slick on the surface and if you avoid siphoning that layer, you can get your beer pretty oil free. When I crack open a chocolate porter, I usually get 1/4 to 1/2 inch creamy head. I did use a pound of malted wheat in the recipie in an effort to help the head retention.

I don't know about peanut butter though. You could give it a try. I'm still trying to wrap my head around that flavor combination just yet...

Default share your recipe?

Andre, Might you be willing to share your recipe for Chocolate Porter? Was it an extract brew (or could it be)?

How about rendering you PB before adding to the wort/secondary? Add water to the PB, boil till all dissolves(just a couple minutes?) , , cool. skim peanut oil off the top. Add remainder to fermenter?. Try it first, to see if there is any flavor left in the...tea? sauce? goop?

Cal it Goob-brew? after drinking, you would need to Goober Pea?
