Peanut butter???
Is there a way to get the flavor or has anyone actually made up a batch.... I'm thinkin double chocolate peanut butter stout.....ideas?

Well, if you did a search, you'd find dozens of examples. But, the short answer is the fat messes the beer up.

Ya I saw that they where using peanut butter powder..... Where does one find peanut butter powder. Also ppl where "de-oiling" peanut powder but how does one "de-oil"?

PB2! You can buy it on amazon. I haven't used it yet, but its next on the list!

The M-I-L used peanut butter extract (bought at Walmart) for making cakes...maybe that's something that should be looked into?

De-oiling is simple, but time consuming. Several weeks to really get a good amount out. Just purchase natural PB (the kind you have to stir to blend the solids with the oils) and let it sit. Keep dumping out the oil till you feel you're done. You'll never get it all out and it's the oils that impact head creation and retention. Basically, you'll pretty much have none.
