Wanted to share some updates. I bottled this last Saturday (6 days ago). Looked and smelled correct. Tasted about right, no off flavors. Got 53 twelve ounce bottles out of it. Put them in cases, and covered them with large kitchen trash bags...just in case of bottle bombs. Going to chill and open one bottle after this weekend just to see how conditioning is going. I'm not expecting them to really be ready until they hit the 2-3 week mark.

Cracked open a bottle this evening to check on carbonation progress. Seems to be about right. Pretty pleased with the finished beer. Crisp, clean. Citrus and clove notes. Quite refreshing. Just grabbed another

How does it taste now? Not too much bananer? I'm currently fermenting this as well at the same temps you were and am concerned about the flavor.

In a good way though right? Not overwhelming.

definitely in a good way. It's not overwhelming. I like that flavor in this style beer.

my wife actually suggested me doing a chocolate beer with this yeast to see if I could somehow pull out that banana flavor.
