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.

Oddly I was talking about this earlier with another brewer. Living next to Hershey, I made a Reese Peanut Butter Double Chocolate Stout using a large jar of Reeses Peanut Butter. It came out great!

I did mine with the peanut butter in the boil for the entire boi. I did not add any other peanut butter or flavoring. the aroma was like sniffing the top of a freshly opened jar of peanut butter and the flavor was perfect. I do not think that anything in peanut butter is fermentable, or if it is, it did nothing but good for my beer. I plan to make it the same way again, only use PB2 instead of real peanut butter. The oil did kill a lot of the head, but it still has some, and I skimmed as much of it off as I could during the boil.

That's interesting, that you put it in the entire boil. What was the amount/gal?
