You know you love it- that candy that you still search for in your kids' Halloween bags. We love it too, so we made a grown-up version of your favorite candy treat. This beer pours dark and rich, with the aroma of peanut butter and chocolate and a full body. It's not too sweet, so you can enjoy more than one. Be the first of your friends to offer this beer, and watch the reactions as suspicion turns to a smile. This recipe has some flexibility- you can add unsweetened cocoa powder (the kind for baking/NOT included) to the boil, or cocoa nibs to the secondary. Both give very good results, and you can make the choice when selecting your recipe.
All orders containing Liquid Yeast will be shipped with a complimentary ice pack to ensure safe shipping!

Milk Stouts are a thick bodied style that contains lactose (milk sugar), which adds to the body and sweetness of the beer. Adding fresh cocoa nibs (or even unsweetened cocoa powder - NOT INCLUDED) and natural peanut butter extract into the secondary fermenter turns a milk stout into a sweet treat- a dessert beer of sorts.

Well I have it in the keg carbonating right now. My last hydrometer reading was 1.012 so I got a middle of the road ABV of 5.25 or so. Tasting the beer and smelling the peanut butter is forward for sure but chocolate does come through. Can't really rate this in full until I pull the first beer from the keg and I'm sure as it ages it will improve they always do. Still a really nice kit.
I Brewed this beer with plans to keg it up for our annual 4th of July party. I moved it to the secondary fermenter the other day and added the cocoa nibs and peanut extract, siphoned off a taste and it tasted great already. The finished product should be a crowd pleaser!
I purchased the peanut butter cup stout extract kit and brewed it. The peanut butter and chocolate came through quite nicely but the base stout did not live up to expectations. It ended up tasting more like a peanut butter brown ale.
Brewing instructions that came with the kit were horrid. If I hadn't had previous brewing experience, the instructions would have been worthless.
The beer is quite drinkable but not what I was expecting. It is unlikely I would purchase this kit again.
Have not brewed yet but arrived in a timely manner.
This Beer Took 2 Days To Start Fermenting But Now Is Going Strong. The Steeping Grains Knocked Me Off My Feet Excellent Aroma. I Know That I Well Love This Beer.
I actually purchased both the Swinging Blonde Ale and the Peanut Butter Cup Stout and since my wife picked out the blonde, we're doing that one first. We're in week two of fermentation and so far so good. This is my fifth overall batch but the first from Home Brew Supply.
Based on the experience I had, Home Brew Supply will be my one and only supplier!!!! Being new to home brewing, I had a ton of questions when my delivery showed up. Jessie spent over an hour on a day he was clearly by himself in the store and never rushed his answers and wasn't talking down to me like some of my local suppliers have done. I look forward to many many successful brews in the future with Home Brew Supply!!!!!!!!!
