Notes
  • Going for a smooth, malt-forward, super dark, very chocolatey Peanut butter stout. Using the 2-chocolate approach used in Black Butte. First time using MOtter. Supposed to be more malt-forward. Lots of oats for head ret and velvet'y'ness. Victory for pie crust aroma.
  • Might need adjusting: Roasted Barley might need to come up from .4lb. Or maybe even sub it for Carafa2 or Carafa3 which is a very dark chocolate grain but less bitter than RB. If it's not sweet enough, maybe add more C80 or even lactose. Lactose might be better because it lacks the raisen'y of C80.
  • Aim for 30 ibu's. Use whatever, just make sure they're neutral.
  • Peanut Butter: People said 2 jars of PB2 in secondary wasn't enough. I'll go with all 4. In 32oz jar, add 1 jar of PB3 and 6oz nibs. Cover in vodka and let sit for a week or so. Boil other 3 jars of PB2 in a little water first (someone said they had an infection) and add it all to secondary. Also ordered some actual reeses cups in case that doesn't do it. If it still sucks, I ordered PB flavoring (which would suck.)
  • Someone said using a belgian ale yeast next time for some banana esters. Sounds fun but also a little busy.

  • OG: 1.074 (Refracto). So I was a little high for some reason.

How did this come out? Was there enough PB and chocolate flavor?
