Date: Tue, 5 Jan 2010 10:44:51 -0600 (CST) From: slaycock at discoverynet.com Subject: Peanut Butter Porter Not that I'm really interested in making a peanut butter beer.. But I did a quick experiment with a half tsp of peanut butter in warm water. Just dissolve your peanut butter in warm water, allow to sit and wait for the oil to float to the surface of the water and skim (or pour)off. That will remove the greater majority of the oil out of the peanut butter. I expect that a fair amount of the "flavor" is contained in the oil, but this process should work fine to minimize the head retention problem. Now the question is how much peanut butter for a 5 gallon batch...hmmm? I always use organic natural peanut butter that has ZERO hydrogenated oils.

Date: Tue, 05 Jan 2010 21:23:04 -0500 From: "David Houseman" <david.houseman at verizon.net> Subject: RE: Peanut Butter in Beer I would have been concerned about the oils in peanut butter as well. But after judging a couple excellent peanut butter beers (a chocolate peanut butter porter was excellent), I talked to the brewers. They simply added the peanut butter at the end of the boil. These beers did not have a problem with head or its retention. So perhaps the concern over the oils is over-stated. Similarly when adding coconut to a beer; I thought the coconut oil would be a problem. It wasn't. Try it and see if there really is a problem or if this is over-stated.
