used the wlp029 and this needs some definite tweaking. i fermented to hot and got some off flavors. I cooked bacon and steeped it in 99 bananas to leech the flavor....mistake number 2. Tasted ass nasty without the bacony flavor i was looking for. maybe the next ime ill try some smoked malt instead..... has potential believe it or not but wasn't as i pictured it. version 2.0 coming eventually.....feel free to tweak it and try

Thats A LOT of smoked malt. I myself havnt used smoked malt before but i have heard you dont need very much at all. like 4-8oz in a 5 Gallon batch.

I would go with bananas instead of the wine. And I'd definitely add some Oats.

would be using rauch malt- not peated which is gnarly strong one....either way havent used it before- is 3# a alot for rauch malt? I figure it will bring out the smoke in the bacon...

Screw it...ordered the grain and PB2. Gonna go with the rauch malt and rack bacon vodka into secondary to supplement smokey flavor. Bananas are going in the boil since i don't care about pectin haze.....will post back Version 2.0 results

+1 on using marris otter instead of 2-row. The sweetness and body are needed in something like this. This is going to be a late Elvis beer. Big and over the top.

Haha yes it is! As for the marris otter- the flaked barley should add some body and keep in mind im going to be boiling bananas which will ferment down to almost a carmel sweetness. Plus there is a pound of crystal 40L. Between the three I'm crossing my fingers that i will be ok. The whole damn beer is a shot in the dark because its so odd.....well see what happens. I can always do Marris for V2.1

Made a rookie mistake- came down and saw no activity, no krausen, nothing for 3 days and without checking gravity, pitched a starter of wlp005 British ale yeast....oops! Still no acitvity and so i figured i was going to try some dry nottingham and checked gravity right beforehand and it had attenuated although not sure which yeast did the job...! 1.062 down to 1.016....6%, almost fully cleared and taste green but great. Excited to see how this keeps coming through...peanutbutter even with 2 full jars is subdued and slightly underwhelming. I am hoping as the beer fully attenuates and cleans up within the next week or so that more peanutbutter comes out. Contemplating adding more but i will wait and see.

Up next: rack onto mad amounts of banana's (not sure green, yellow or ripe or black)....Thoughts on this one? Think 8 will be enough...guessing maybe more considering 8 bananas would probably be under 2# for a 6 gallon batch....?
