I would love some help with a peanut butter and jelly recipe that Im working on. The plan is to brew a peanut butter nut brown and a strawberry wheat. Im open to suggestions on different styles but that combo sounded like it would work well. Im going to make the peanut butter a lot bigger than the strawberry so I can serve it like a black and tan with the two beers separated. Any suggestions are much appreciated. I will post final recipes and pictures when finished.

Here is what I have so far for the two recipes:

Peanut Butter Nut Brown
12# Marris Otter
2# Munich
1# Carapils
1# Honey Malt
.5# Biscuit
.25# Chocolate Wheat
1oz EKG 60min
2 Jars Dried Peanut Butter
Mash @ 152
Wyeast 1056
Ferment @ 65-68 degrees

Strawberry Wheat
5# 2-Row
4# Wheat Malt
1# Oats
.25# Munich
2oz Special B I want to add a very light red hue but not affect flavor too much
.5oz EKG 60min
Strawberry Extract - Keg
Mash @ 152
Wyeast 1056
Ferment @ 65-68 degrees

By dried peanut butter do you mean powdered?

Yeah sorry. The PB2 powder from Hy-vee. Pouring the oil off of all natural peanut butter just doesn't seem worth the effort when you can buy this stuff at the grocery store. PB2 – Powdered Peanut Butter Hy-vee Health State of Mind

Also, considering a porter for a base beer instead of the nut brown but don't want it to overpower the strawberry in the wheat beer when mixed.

Makes sense to me.

I've never brewed a peanut butter beer and will be interested to hear how it turns out. My buddy is pretty well known for his and you might be able to get some tips from his blog post. I've had it and it's delicious.

how did this turn out? I have a couple lbs of PB2 that I bought a while back with the intention of making a PBJ beer.

I was going to go more wheat beer with PBJ added.

Sorry I forgot to post back with results. The final beers turned out amazing. Most interesting beer I've ever tasted. It really did taste like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Not something you could sit and drink all night but perfect for a crowd pleaser at a party or beer festival. We took 5 gallons of each beer to extreme beer fest here in Omaha last year and both were gone after 30 minutes of the event. Keep in mind we developed the recipes based on the fact that we wanted to serve them together and the wheat on nitro. Here's the recipes:

Peanut Butter Nut Brown -10 gallons

22# Marris Otter
4# Munich
2# Carapils
2# C-40
1# Biscuit
1# Chocolate Wheat

EKG 38 IBU 60min

2 Jars PB2 Peanut Butter Powder per 5 gallons –Secondary 1 week Mash @ 154 US-04 @ 65-68 degrees

OG –1.080
SRM –24
IBU - 38


Strawberry Wheat - 10 gallons

10# 2-Row
8# Wheat Malt
2# Oats
.5# Munich
6oz Special B

EKG19 IBU 60min

Strawberry Extract - Keg

Mash @ 150
Wyeast 1056 Ferment @ 65-68 degre
OG –1.050
SRM –8
IBU –19

Peanut Butter Nut Brown
EKG (East Kent Goldings) 38 IBU 60min

Strawberry Wheat
EKG (East Kent Goldings) 19 IBU 60min

I think any English variety would work in something like this though. Just enough to balance out the sweetness a bit. Definitely want malt / peanut butter / jelly flavor to come through more than hops.
