My LHBS suggested I didn't use real bananas because the yeast would give off that flavor, but next time I'll use either bananas or banana extract. Oh well, it'll still be delicious!
Why couldn't you add banana extract now?

If you're not getting banana, you need to manipulate your yeast differently.


Under pitching and increasing Ferm temp will both produce more banana/clove aroma/taste.

I didn't add banana extract because when I bottled I didn't have any on hand and it's not an easy thing to find around here. Originally I wanted to used real bananas but was talked out of it at LHBS

It's done and carbed, although more of a tease watching my husband drink it since I still can't! Baby is almost here! Got to have a sip though and it's good!
