Recipe is interesting. How did it turn out? Why did you use marris otter instead of German pils? Why did you choose to bottle with DME instead of corn sugar? Do you normally bottle with corn sugar or DME?

Ooops. Almost a year late on the reply. I used MO because I feel that it compliments the wheat. It's has a lot more character than pilsner. It's considerably more malty than a typical hefe with pilsner. It turned out great. Bready and biscuity with a little clove. Barely any banana. Next time I make it, I'll let it sit in primary for another few days. There was a touch of sulfur left over.

I always bottle with DME. I've used corn sugar and never had any issues with it, but for some reason I just prefer DME. You could use corn sugar to hit 2.8vol carbonation.

I'd also do a 30 min ferulic acid rest at 109F and skip the protein rest at 130 next time I make this. Overall, it's an excellent recipe and one of the few I've made that ended up exactly as I wanted.
