Default 3068 in an IPA

Has anyone tried using the weihenstephaner yeast in an IPA? Specifically a two hearted ale clone?

In my experience it's too assertive, flavor-wise, to allow hop flavors to come through and ferments too vigorously to let aromas survive fermentation. I've never tried dry hopping after, though.

Well I already washed it down. Bottled a Bavarian hefewiezen just now and was curious if I could use it I
In one since I have several sacks of 2 row and a sack of c40 as well as a couple pounds of centennial hops just lieing around. Oh well. Ill just get some wyeast 1056 next time in town. Thanks though that does help

If you use a higher-kilned base malt like Munich, you don't get the clove phenolics (kilning destroys precursors). You'd still get bananas though.

It'd be interesting to have a 100% Munich + 3068 banana bread base mixed with Citra and some tropical NZ hops. Like a tropical fruit smoothie beer. If that sort of thing sounds good to you. Interesting thought for sure.

I'm not one to think this is a manly drink or that is a girly drink. If you brew that and it's good send me one lol. Hell I went for a couple years on a mixed drink kick. That does sound good right now too a good tropical smoothie with a triple shot of rum mmmmmm.

If you wanted to get some hoppy flavors and aromas, I might try dry hopping. I've never done that myself, since my desire for a WeiPA waned after my initial failed experiments.

Have you tried the Hopfenweisse collaboration between Schneider and Brooklyn? It's pretty much a cross between a traditional Bavarian hefe and American IPA, and it's awesome. If I were going to attempt something along these lines, that's what I'd be shooting for.

Boy have I ever, damn delish too. If you find a recipe please let me know. That could be my one brew for the rest of my life. Now you've made me sad that I don't have any lol.
