I saw my LHBS had a Brewers Best Peanut Butter flavoring extract and I was wondering how it might be if I used a Brewers Best Porter kit and added the extract at bottle time.

Anyone ever use this particular extract or have any thoughts on this idea?

I have made some real strange experiments but this sounds like a good idea

I would not go real hoppy as you would be trying to have the penut butter taste shine, just enough hops to bitter and not much more

but those are my thoughts

and hey, put it in, someone will drink it

I know I saw in another forum someone making something similar, but they used dried peanut butter, i think this is the one

I've seen the powdered PB before and thought of using that but noticed the PB extract the other day and figured that would be a lot easier. Plus, I've used some of their other extracts and have always been pleased with the outcome. I'm thinking my next batch will be a BB Porter kit and then adding the PB extract at bottle time. Updates will be posted.

Definitely keep us posted... I'm not sure how I'd like a peanut butter porter... but maybe a CHOCOLATE & peanut butter porter... or stout.

I just brewed a chocolate peanut butter stout yesterday. The peanut butter powder (PB2) and chocolate powder go in after a week of fermentation in the primary. Transfer to secondary on top of the powders. I'll try to keep posted how it turns out.

DuClaw Brewing out of Baltimore makes one of these, called Sweet Baby Jesus. I was surprised at how good this stuff was. I googled a clone recipe, and didn't come up with much. Someone here on HBT has listed the ingredients, that could be a starting point for you. Good luck! Let us know what you decide to do.

My first two attempts I used only pb2 to achieve peanut flavor and neither adding to boil or adding to secondary resulted in any noticeable peanut flavor.

I will post back after the beer has time to carb up and the flavors to come together (2 weeks).
