Peanut Butter
« on: February 14, 2011, 02:37:21 PM »
I just learnt of a Peanut Butter Porter. The recipe says to use the oil off the top of a jar of natural peanut butter.

I wonder about the wisdom of using peanut oil as a flavouring agent....

Maybe use crushed unsalted dry roasted peanuts in the mash?

Better idea... why not just let beer taste like beer and your pbj's like pbj's?   We need another smiley face... one thats puking.

Dean...... so I'm guessing that you wouldn't be in favor of making a Fat ::) Elvis beer by adding peanut butter to a hefewiezen to get that peanut butter & nanner thing he was so into?  ::)

I've had a smoked hefeweizen before, that gets you the banana and bacon.  I'm not sure I would add peanut butter to that beer, but I would try it :)

I guess I would "try" a glass... but yep I'm not into any of the beers that taste like something else really.  Now if somebody said beer with a subtle pb taste... I might be more interested but to make a beer that tastes like pb... yeck!  LOL!   :D  It reminds me ... I just saw a show where they made jellybeans with wierd tastes... earwax... puke...  :o   Why oh Why would Anyone want to eat candy that tasted like something the body expells?!!  Weirdos!!!!   :D

Oh, I think it sounds horrible. I was just intrigued by the idea. And yes, I think it sounds nasty.

Google says it's Bertie Botts Every Flavor Beans.  Between all of us and google we can figure it out :)

Although it looks like maybe Jelly Belly lost the rights, since now they list them as BeanBoozled on their website.

Wouldn't the oil from the peanuts kill the flavor anyway? 

I say just have some phad thai with your weizenbier and call it a day!

...not that I haven't been interested in rather oddball beers myself.

Hey, you could make a pad thai beer by mashing with rice noodles and roasted peanuts, steeping with birdseye chilies and basil and dosing with fish sauce!
