This is my first beer since moving to a new apartment. I recently came across some powdered peanut butter and wanted to try a recipe that uses it. I decided to go with a recipe from HomeBrewTalk that seemed interesting.
I was worried the counter-top gas burners in my new apartment will not sustain a good boil, but brewing went off without a hitch.
Aside from the powdered peanut butter, this is also the first time I'm using cocoa nibs and powder in a beer too. Two days after pitching the yeast, when high krausen has ended, I boiled the peanut butter and cocoa powders in water, cooled them in an ice bath and added them to the fermenter, which caused fermentation to kick off a little bit for about a day. I then soaked the cocoa nibs in vodka for a few weeks, and added it to the beer when transferring to the Party Pig.
