What sort of beer are you making? What's the starting gravity? What sort of grains or extract are you brewing from? – Tobias Patton Mar 9 '14 at 6:45

There's a recipe for peanut butter beer in my book. We recommend 12 oz. of PB2 powder, dissolved in 6 oz. of 150 proof spirits. Let that sit for a few days, then put it in a keg and rack the beer onto it. Let it cold crash for a week, then rack the beer off the slurry into a fresh keg.

It is a brown ale! Would it be a problem if I added the Powder(PB2) when I transferred it to the secondary? – Husker Steve Mar 9 '14 at 20:56
I can only recommend the technique I wrote about above. I don't know how any other method would work. – Denny Conn Mar 10 '14 at 15:30
