This is my first made up recipe so it could be a disaster.
Oh OK, gotcha. That's why I had never been happy with Wyeast-3068. It just had too much banana flavor and not enough spice no matter what the fermentation temperature was. Then I figured out that I had to over pitch and ferment cooler to get more spice and tangy flavors. Now I love it. I've never used S-04, but I have read the same things about the fruity esters. I've been curious to try WLP299
. The description sounds like it would go well in a wheat beer.
I've played around a little with wheat recipes. My standard grain bill for wheat beers is now 7 lbs wheat, 4 lbs pilsner. I'll change up the yeast and hops to try different things.
Good luck with it.
