Default bananas & peanut butter elvis beer

so in an altered moment last night right as i was falling asleep i thought about elvis. I know- somewhat creepy but i mean the guy liked peanut butter and banana sandwhiches. This got me thinking- i have around 4 pounds of overly rpe bannanas and alot of time on my hands, why not make a fruit beer. Heres what i have, any comments welcome.
The Elvis


SG:~1.060
25.6 IBU
--------
% Amount Name Origin Potential SRM
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
55.2 6.00 lbs. Pale Malt(2-row) America 1.036 2
36.8 4.00 lbs. Banana-Overripe 1.035 5
4.6 0.50 lbs. Biscuit Malt Belgium 1.035 24
3.4 0.38 lbs. Chocolate Malt America 1.029 350
8oz deoiled peanutbutter

1.25 oz. Fuggle 25.6 @ 60 min.
(possibly additional styrian goldings or saaz)

I also am going to add 8 oz deoiled natural peanutbutter. Im basing this off of this: SleezySherm » Beer Recipes For additional deoiling- once its crumbly im going to spread onto a n oven sheet and roast at low temperature to draw out any excess oils making sure not to burn it.

Im going to boil the bannanas and skins per yooperbrews banana wine (grain bag) and then add the fruit into the grain as i mash. The liquor i get off the bananas will go into the wort as i drain first runnings. This should draw out some more flavor. Ill mash for medium to medium low body.

as for yeast i was thinking something spicy like a saison yeast.

Sounds delicious. Any reason you went with fruit in the mash as opposed to in the secondary?

I know you have bananas to use up, but what about using a hefeweizen yeast to kick off the banana notes? Might be interesting

Have you tried Well's Bananna Bread Beer?
It is the yum! IMHO.

Yours sounds tasty.

I figure the bannana is going to pack a punch anyway and im gonna get mkore sugars and flavor from it if i boil and mash it. Honestly this is a shot in the dark.....

i thought about that but i want more spicy flavor. I could use hef yeast and go for a colder fermentation to get the clove notes or i could just use the saison yeast. My house heats up to around 75 degrees which would give me waaaay to much banana. I would prefer the peanut butter comes though.

i personally think you should make it as a dunkelweizen. use the bananas, but also get the flavor from WLP300 banana. use british grains and make it nice and bready...get the peanut butter flavor in there.

my banana bread ale is dead on. tastes kinda like it and SMELLS exactly like banana bread.
just a thought
