Default Chocolate Stout w/ Bavarian Hefe Yeast?

This is my base TEN GALLON Chocolate Stout:

Grain:

20LBS American 2-row
2 LBS flaked oats
1LB Chocolate Malt
1LB Roasted Barley

Hops:

3 OZ East Kent Goldings 60 minutes
1 OZ East Kent Goldings 15 minutes

30 IBUs Tinseth

Yeast:

Nottingham or S-05

Extras:

8OZ 100% Cocoa Power added 5 minutes before flameout
Dash of Chocolate Essence added when kegging


I wonder how this would turn out with Hefe yeast a la Wyeast Weihenstephan Wiezen 3068? I like the banana/clove flavors from this yeast but how would it turn out in a beer that isn't a wheat beer? Anyone tried something similar to this???

Give it a try! It sounds like it might be good.

yeah i'm doing a 2.5 gallon extract test batch later on this week. If it works out well I'll do it on the full 10 gallon AG system....

I tried a chocolate banana porter once... I wish I had used a hefe yeast for it... I used banana extract. Wasn't that great.

But someday, I'd like to do it like this.
