You cannot. Not with Handbrake. If you want to preserve PCM for whatever reason (it's uncompressed audio!) you have to mux it into the new video file yourself.

FLAC encoder is your best bet if you want to stick with a HandBrake-only workflow.

You can rip your BluRay with MakeMKV. Then you can save your audio with MKVExtract.
