Default looking for a black wheat/black Hefe recipe

Had one at a local brewery and thought it was awesome. Seems like a nice variation on an easy wheat beer. I love doing hefes cause I can get them brewed and kegged so quickly, and this seems like a nice change from the normal. I really liked the subtle chocolaty flavors playing off the banana from the yeast, so I'd like to find a recipe that will bring both out.

any help?

Thanks,
cheers!

It's funny, I was searching the forum for a similar recipe earlier today. Seems like a dunkelweizen recipe (pils, wheat, Munich, maybe a little crystal) and then some chocolate wheat malt or midnight wheat added depending on the color and roastiness you are going for should do it. I'd like to see what others think.

I was thinking of just doing my house Hefe recipe but subbing out some of the Red Wheat for Midnight wheat, and some crystal 60. Planned on using the same yeast. It would look something like this:

5# German Pils
4# German Wheat Malt
8oz. Midnight Wheat
8oz. Crystal 60
4oz Flaked Wheat

.75 oz Liberty @ 60
.5 oz Liberty @ 10

Wyeast 3068 (Weihenstephan) @68* for 10 days, then keg.

what do you think?

after playing with beersmith this is what I've come up with:

5#Wheat malt
3#Munich malt
2#Pilsner 2 Row
8oz. Chocolate Malt
6oz. Crystal 60
1.0 oz. Liberty @60
Wyeast 3068 @ 68 Degrees for 10 days, then Keg.

Thoughts?

Edited for Updates!

To get it really dark you probably want to use some dehusked carafa.

If you're looking for the least flavor addition but the most color go with III but II would be fine as well.

about to sparge. It smells amazing, and the color is pretty much exactly what I was looking for. My strike water turned DARK brown as I was doughing in, so its just gonna get darker.

Yeah, that beer should be very dark and foggy between the carafa, the wheat and the yeast. Should be like a nice midnight fog when it's done. Keep us updated.
