I don't know if any of you have had Terrapin Brewery's "Liquid Bliss", but this is sort of the peanut profile I am going for.
Sounds like a great recipe; I think you're right on with the lactose to sweeten up the chocolate, and it may at the same time help the PB shine through a little. Let me know how it turns out.

I brewed this and it turned out terrible. It is bad enough that I cannot drink it. Any ideas on what to do with it before I open and dump 2 cases of bottles? I've thought maybe test a gallon of it with some brett and see how it changes.

Using it to make bread is one of the thoughts as well. But, beer and ice cream just don't go together.

Reed1911 - How does it taste horrible? Does it taste like real peanut butter? Does it taste like fake peanut butter? Is it infected? A version of this has become a house favorite and I'm looking for pointers. Perhaps I could see that a sample makes it your way on the next brew.

I honestly think the loren's PB killed it. It has a great up front flavor, but a real chemical aftertaste that is sweet and cloying. It's not chemical like acetone more like preservative or aspartame aftertaste.

Man I'm sorry to hear that. Maybe we just like different flavors? Either way, I use my less-than-spectacular beers for cooking, like bread or soups or beer brats, but I definitely wouldn't use an "undrinkable" beer for that, as the flavor still comes through. Best of luck.
