Mashfest Winner Recipe - Peanut Butter Jelly Time - All Grain


Winter Mashfest 2019 People's Choice - Corey Phipps
Robust Porter with Peanut Butter and Black Currant flavoring

Is there anything more nostalgic than a peanut butter and jelly sandwich? The sweetness of the jelly, the smoothness of the peanut butter and the inevitable moment when it sticks to the roof of your mouth. Mix it all together and it’s a beautiful thing. This beer was created out of a love for this time-honored treat. So, revisit the good old days and raise a glass to your inner child!                 -Corey Phipps

Mash at 152° for 60 minutes.  Raise temperature of mash to 170°, (called mash-out temperature) and run off 6.5 gallons of wort to begin your boil.  When wort comes to a boil add 1 oz Magnum hops and start a timer for 45 minutes.  When timer goes off add 1tsp of Yeast Nutrient, 1tsp of Irish Moss, 1 oz Cascade Hops, and boil for 5 more minutes. After 5 minutes add 1 lb of PB2 (powdered peanut butter) and boil for 10 additional minutes. At the end of the boil cool your wort, transfer to your fermenter, top up to 5 gallons with room temp water, and pitch your yeast when the temperature of the beer is between 65° and 70°. Ferment at 68°.

After activity has slowed transfer to a secondary fermenter then add the 2 oz of Black Currant Extract and Peanut Butter Extract to taste. You can even add more Black Currant and/or Peanut Butter extract if you wish, then bottle or keg  your beer as normal and enjoy!
