how do you think this would turn out with wyeast 3086 weihenstephan yeast?

wyeast.com-"Dominated by banana ester production, phenols and clove-like characteristics. Extremely attenuative yeast, which produces a tart, refreshing finish"

It wouldn't really be true to a Belgian Blonde style. The nice thing about this beer is the slight malt flavor and a mild wit yeast that is slightly floral and a bit fruity.

I think the banana clove would be a bit to dominant.

I will be doing the extract recipe you gave next. Does this require 2-stage fermentation?

Not necessarily.

I'd only suggest that whether you keep the beer in a single fermenter or rack to a secondary, that you give it at least 3 weeks and not rush it.

The extract process actually benefits from a longer fermentation in that the beer "cleans up" better.

righteous. I pretty stoked about this beer, as I will be finishing my third beer in the Belgian style. I will also be pitching onto an old yeast cake from a witbeir that is fermenting right now. This will be a new technique for me.

Midwest sells this as an all-grain kit and extract. There extract kit includes:

3 lbs. Wheat DME
2 lbs. Extra Lght DME
8 oz. Caramel 10°L
8 oz. Flaked Wheat
4 oz. Caravienne malt

1 oz hops (looks like they changed to Glacier from Williamette)

BTW, the extract verison you posted is not good. It calls for .5 wheat LME and 5.0 flaked wheat. Is that a typo?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I showed this to my lhbs and she laughed at me. Do you know how much 5.0 Lbs of flaked wheat is? That is way too much for a 5 gal batch.
