So I dont know if many of you have seen it before but there is someone doing a peanut butter porter- https://www.homebrewtalk.com/f12/peanut-butter-porter-w-powdered-peanut-butter-61538/

This intrigued me as I love peanut butter and could never figure out a way to get it into beer. Well since finding PB2 I can finally start my crusade of a peanut butter brew. I would like to do my base beer a a nut brown with the added peanut butter in my boil. Also I am doing partial and light malt extra will be used.

Suggestions?

Lots of people have put PB in their beer. Haven't seen many posts about how it tasted.

Sounds interesting.
I have seen pecans used before but not peanuts.
I would think the oil would likely kill any head. I wonder if you could just use the peanut "trub" in the bottom of an all natural peanut butter (no salt, no sugar, no preservatives) - just pour off the oil on top (great for frying).
This will not eliminate the oil but will limit it to some extend and I think you would get more flavour from the solids.

That is a long difficult process hence why I am going with the powder

Get Peanut Butter Extract. I am sure that the grocery store or some specialty online would have it.
I have the powered stuff so dont need the extract need a base beer recipe

I've done a PB stout. It's floating around here somewhere. I went with the actually PB, de-oiled, etc. Did have a problem with head retention and the PB flavor I was looking for wasn't quite there. Probably just needed to add more. I say just find a base recipe you now works and you think it will benefit from the addition. The joy of homebrewing is we can experiment.


PS: Recipe is in the my Recipes drop down to the left

I do not have a good nut brown that works and that is my biggest problem.
