Default Powdered Nuts

I was thinking of adding some powdered peanut butter to a porter I'm going to brew this weekend. I was wondering what would be the best way. During the boil or in the secondary? Any suggestions?

I'd say in the boil just to make sure it's sanitized and you get good flavor extraction. Probably late, 5-10m.

Here is a very long thread on it. http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f12/pean...-butter-61538/ I forget what conclusion they came to, but I think it involves soaking it in vodka and putting it in secondary.

uuuh...dude? Aren't powdered nuts what you get from mummies? Seriously though,I'd say the last 15 minutes of the boil,like you would zest,corieander or something.

I used the PB2 in a stout, added it in secondary the whole 16oz vacum sealed pack. As well as 4oz cacao nibs. It's funny I taste only the pb and all guests taste the chocolate. I have had it in a bottle right before Christmas. The recipe says to wait 4 months after bottling. So I still got some waiting to do.

I put a pound of PB2 in the boil at 15 minutes and stirred like crazy. During straining, there was a lot a lot of mini dough balls that were left undissolved. Anybody else have this experience? It was a stout btw.
