Yes. Currently at 9 days in primary and moving to secondary later this week. I changed up the grain bill a bit and went with different hops, since my lhbs didn't have any saaz on hand:

50% 2-row
25% caramel/crystal 20
25% white wheat

.75 oz hallertau mittelfruh @ 60
.25 oz hallertau mittelfruh @ 10

Everything else is/will be the same. Also, it's a BIAB.

Thanks for pioneering this. I'm hoping I'll be as happy with mine as you are with yours. This is my 2nd brew ever, so I guess we'll wait and see.

Edit: Oh, I forgot to mention I also dialed back the OG to 1.050 in order to get a final ABV around 5.2 (not including whatever the bananas and rum do to it).

Yes - Currently in secondary on banana puree.

Only thing I changed was going with Cascade for my hops.

Plan to keg it in two and a half weeks.

i see you did not add the flaked corn. A dialed down version really wouldnt be that bad , mine has a unique heat to it, almost like a real boozie bananas foster. Well i hope it turns out great.
Dont forget to post pics, being that we are far apart thats the only way we will be able to compare.

I'm looking forward to brewing this. Waiting 2-4 more weeks to plan for this beer to be ready to kick off the spring.

So I'm assuming this recipe is a big fat "GO" YES?

Nice. Please let us know how they do.

An update on my version of this recipe...

Currently at 12 days on the puree in secondary. A couple more days and I'll rack to a clean carboy and cold crash for about a week, then into the keg it will go. Will post a pic and critique when I pull my first pint in about 3 more weeks or so. Getting anxious to see how it turned out.
