Default All-Grain - Sehrdunkelweizen

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: Hefeweizen Ale WLP300
Batch Size (Gallons): 5
Original Gravity: 1.052
Final Gravity: 1.015
IBU: 15.8
Boiling Time (Minutes): 50
Color: 22.6
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 21
Tasting Notes: Hint of banana and a smooth maltiness expected of dark beer, hints of chocolate malt

Note on the name: I called this 'Sehrdunkelweizen' as the first time I made this beer I accidentally doubled the amount of CarafaII, which put the brew at the extreme of the SRM scale for the style. Sehr means 'very' in German, so it translates to very dark wheat beer. Hope you enjoy this as much as I do!

I've made similar dunkelweizens. I prefer the WLP380 (Hefeweizen IV) for the dark german wheats, but 300 is nice, too. I generally use that for the lighter wheats where I prefer more banana.

Tettnanger is my absolute favorite hop for german wheats.

I was going back and forth on the yest for this this and I'm glad I went with the 300. I like the amount of banana I got, it's not over powering, but it is definitely there. And you can never go wrong with Tettnanger This is actually originally based off of one of your recipes, so thanks!

The last time i made this, I change half of the CarafaII to choclate malt, giving me 1/4# of each, but I'm going to go back to the full 1/2# of CarafaII. I think it lost a little of it's edge going with the chocolate.

I'm going to rebrew this this weekend and try it as my first decoction! I'm likely to change very little in the recipe otherwise.
