As for the dunkelweiss BigKahuna has a recipe that looks pretty tasty :

Extract - Bananas On The Beach Dunkelweizen
Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: 3068
Yeast Starter: no
Additional Yeast or Yeast Starter: no
Batch Size (Gallons): 5
Original Gravity: 1.056
Final Gravity: 1.004
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 9
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 10 in bottle

This is a direct Knock off of debaniel recipe for Bananas foster. The 2 differences are that I used ALL Fuggle Hops, and bottled with Malibu Banana. This seems more like an easy going barefoot in the sand beer than an uptight tuxedo wearing Bananas Foster. So I changed the recipe a bit...and the name.

1 lbs. American Crystal 120L
0.25 lbs. Belgian Special B
6.4 lbs. Liquid Wheat Extract
1 lbs. Candi Sugar Dark

1.5 oz. Fuggle Hops boiled 60 min.
0.50 oz. Fuggle boiled 15 min.

Yeast : WYeast 3068 No starter...Just tossed the tube in the primary.

The secret to this fine drink is bottling. Add 4 oz Priming Sugar, 750 ML of Malibu Banana Rum, and 2 cups of Appleton Estates Rum.

This turns out to be a typical cloudy 3068 beer, NICE banana flavor, and a good bit of alcohol. My rough calculations put it at around 7 1/2%

I like to have Hefeweizen around for the summer. Drinks easy and tastes delicious.
