This is my first post and I'm on my 9th homebrew batch. I made a brown porter (flag porter clone) and this will be my third time making it. In short I want to take about a gallon out of my current batch, before I rack it off, and experiment a little. I'd love to make a chocolate peanutbutter porter, but there is A LOT of different opinions out there. I already have PB2 powdered peanutbutter and I'm just trying to figure out if this is something I can do in a 1 gallon Carboy or will I need to add the powder at flame out of my next batch? Same question applies to chocolate as well. Have I already missed my window to add these flavors?

I know you can age on cacao nibs in your primary or secondary, but the powdered peanut butter extract does best in the boil near flameout.

I've been looking for the powdered peanut butter. Where did you get it?
