Biere peanut brittle

I can't share the family secret base peanut brittle recipe, but I have figured out how to make beer peanut brittle. Just subsitute beer for whatever water is in you peanut brittle recipe. Big important warning................... make sure to use at least a pan 2x as big as you normally do. This thing will be a gigantic foam monster till it reaches soft ball stage and you add your peanuts. I would not try this in a microwave you will be cleaning up sugar for a week in there. I have found that hoppy beers give the brittle more beer taste.
