6.00 oz Powdered Peanut Butter (Boil 5.0 min)

Comments

The salt additions are to build RO water up to something resembling English water from the London area.

The color grains (Black Patent, De-Bittered Black Malt, Carafa Special II) in the mash can be simplified to 0.25 lbs of your favorite color malt, preferably de-bittered or de-husked - this beer should not be roasty.

It's good without the powered peanut butter (PB2 brand) as well, but adding it gives it a faint hint of nuttiness that plays very nicely with the chocolate character of the beer. The peanut aroma is fairly strong at first, but fades quickly.

To convert to partial mash, replace part of the 2-row malt with Golden Light (but definitely not Pilsner) malt extract.
