Did the captain crunch really impart any real taste? Sounds yummy at least.

I have not tried it without the cereal. Others have said that with using 2 6.5oz jars of the PB2 that some did not taste enough peanut butter flavoring so that's why I added the Captain Crunch. I can tell you that as time goes by the flavor has mellowed.

Got this in the primary and am about to rack on to the PB2 in the secondary. Going to soak the cocoa nibs in some vodka with a vanilla bean for the last 5 days. I'll be sure to let everyone know how it turns out.

I have noticed with little I have left it has taken on a "dry" taste. It still does taste good but if anyone has a recommendation for others brewing it might be helpful.

WOW!

This turned out amazing! All of my friends are begging me for bottles. I put a little too much priming sugar in it, but once it sets for a little while it's spot on. The peanut butter flavor is great and not overwhelming. My wife (a PB fanatic) actually wants me to add a little more next time.

Thanks for a great recipe! Can't wait to brew it again!
