I doubt it could be any worse than the ordinary peanut butter (see below).


First pic: This is what it looked like when I took the lid off. 3/4" thick layer of crust, I assume the chocolate that came out of solution. I tasted a bit of the crust. Had to drink an entire coke to get the taste out of my mouth.

Second pic:
This is what was on the bottom. All the peanut butter.

3rd pic: this was some of the slurry that was filtered out.

4th pic: more slurry

I ended up filtering twice. First time just through the strainer. Second time through a paper towel inside the strainer. Still have a lot of sediment in the beer.
