Default Brown krausen

I am in the process of making my peanut butter porter. I've always had a kind of cream colored krausen. I've never had a brownish krausen. It looks like chocolate fudge. I'm not too worried about it. I just thought I would share.

Can you shoot me the recipe? I'm curious about the idea of anything where the universes of beer and peanut butter try to intersect.

Well this is my version
I probably would have used more of 2 row as my base but so far the initial wort taste was pretty delicious.

I used 2.5 ounces of east kent goldings at 60 minutes. Some would say that too hoppy but whatever.

I'm adding the 2 jars of powdered (pb2) peanut butter to my secondary. I also have some peanut butter extract which I might add to taste. I havnt really decided yet.

I never saw a recipe with flaked oats in it so I thought I would throw them in too

Update*

Well, due to time constraints. I bottled my peanut butter porter last night. Total time from brew day to bottling was about 17 days. I usually don't rush these things but this one I kinda had to.

Reminder. I used 2 jars of PB2 for 7 days in the secondary and 1.5 teaspoons of peanut butter extract for 5 days.

The taste was really nice. MALTY, a hint of peanut butter. It has a great peanut butter aroma.I think after the maltiness smooths out a little it might get better.

I may have put in too much roasted barley. Hopefully it smooths out a little. Either ways it should turn out good. I can't wait to taste it after it has conditioned.

I have noticed the roastes barley flavor can smooth with time. Next time you might want to cut it down to 4-6oz but i think by the time these bottles are ready to drink it should be smoother
