Only thing you need to be careful with if you go ith WLP 380 - leave lots of space for krausen. I read reviews that said to and didnt expect how high it actually got luckily i got a 11 gallon fermenter so I was in the clear but just an FYI

**Dont mind the pink towel poor ex student here stole it from moms!!

I have Wyeast 3068 fermenting a batch of German Hefe right now and it's giving off a very banana like aroma.
