Peanut butter stout

Anyone have a good peanut butter stout recipe they wouldn’t mind sharing?
Thanks

I don’t usually go much for these gimmicky sorts of beers, but I tasted a very good PB Stout made by another homebrewer friend. It was surprisingly good.
He used a fairly standard stout recipe (it may have even been the basic Guinness clone from Charlie P’s old book); and for the PB addition, he didn’t use actual peanut butter, since he wanted to avoid the negative effects the oils would have on the beer (or in the case of products like Skippy or Jif, the hydrogenated vegetable lard that typifies those latter two products :open_mouth:. Seriously… those types of peanut butter are literally little more than peanut flavored, sweetened Crisco). Instead, he wisely substituted defatted peanut flour (these days, it’s available in just about any grocery store…you’ll find it in jars, usually on the same shelf as regular peanut butters. Keep in mind that if you want the hint of the sweetenss that most commercial (and non-‘natural’) brands of PB have because of the added sugar, you’ll have to include a pinch of salt and some form of non-fermentable sweetness (such as lactose?)
:relaxed:
