Here at Kegconnection everyone loves chocolate and peanut butter, so we are offering this recipe as a drinkable form of the world's most popular candy! This dark, rich milk stout is thick bodied with a potent aroma. The brew has a subtle amount of sweetness from the lactose that you can enjoy beer after beer. The recipe allows the brewer to have their pick of a couple different options; adding unsweetened cocoa powder to the boil or cocoa nibs (which are included in the kit) to the secondary. We have thoroughly tested both and have gotten great results.

It is a fan favorite, beating off the neabors,
I made some additions, Going to make this a regular brew.
Great kit with all I needed to make a great peanut butter stout. I usually add to the recipe but this one didn’t need anything extra.
Awesome brew!!! My first attempt at doing this mix and so far has turned out great! It is in primary fermentation right now but all signs are looking good!! One addition to the recipe would be to make a roux (cooking term) of the cocoa powder and peanut powder and a little of the wort before adding it to the boil. No clumps and it mixes in nicely!! Hopefully in a few weeks I’ll have a great beer to enjoy!!!
The kit worked well but the beer is still fermenting. My only complaint is that it wasn't clear that you needed your own chocolate powder.
I brewed this back earlier this winter, and I had friends making excuses to come over and help me get through my keg. It doesn't get much better than that. I ended up with a bit more than 5 gallons from my grainfather, so I bottled the excess without any PB extract and they were just as good.
I will probably get this kit again, and I may use a bit less of the PB extract, but that is just a personal taste preference.
I've tried a few of these type of kits now and this one is the best! I added a little PB2 in addition to the extract to give it even more peanut butte flavor which is what I was going for.
My new go to for beer making ingredients
Brewed this for the holidays and it went over BIG! Great blend of chocolate and peanut Butter as it hits you palate, then the stout flavor takes over until the after taste where the sweetness returns. Came out a 5% ABV. Brought it to my local bar and the owner offered me a tap if I had any more kegs!! I look forward to brewing this again!
Used the grainfather to brew this. Great taste and surpassed abv by .5% in the end. Really good milk stout
