That's the proper way to go about it. From what I've heard the powdered peanut butter makes a really bad mess in the fermenter, so be aware of that.

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.

You're in Katy? Me too! I'll be a Texas Homebrewers today @ 4:00 for the weekly demo. I'm bringing some of this funky crap, as a "gag"

Oh, in that case give it some time. Bottle conditioning takes a few weeks.

...it might creep up to a 6 or 7 out of ten!

So I should cancel the nacho-beer?

Wow those pictures are nasty! Although the second one looks a lot like chicken taco meat but I guess it sure didn't smell like that. Risk taking is awesome and it takes guts to share your failures with others so they don't make the same mistake. Thanks for that.
