Default Extract - Bananas On The Beach Dunkelweizen

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: 3068
Yeast Starter: no
Additional Yeast or Yeast Starter: no
Batch Size (Gallons): 5
Original Gravity: 1.056
Final Gravity: 1.004
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 9
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 10 in bottle

This is a direct Knock off of debaniel recipe for Bananas foster. The 2 differences are that I used ALL Fuggle Hops, and bottled with Malibu Banana. This seems more like an easy going barefoot in the sand beer than an uptight tuxedo wearing Bananas Foster. So I changed the recipe a bit...and the name.

1 lbs. American Crystal 120°L
0.25 lbs. Belgian Special B
6.4 lbs. Liquid Wheat Extract
1 lbs. Candi Sugar Dark

1.5 oz. Fuggle Hops boiled 60 min.
0.50 oz. Fuggle boiled 15 min.

Yeast : WYeast 3068 No starter...Just tossed the tube in the primary.

The secret to this fine drink is bottling. Add 4 oz Priming Sugar, 750 ML of Malibu Banana Rum, and 2 cups of Appleton Estates Rum.

This turns out to be a typical cloudy 3068 beer, NICE banana flavor, and a good bit of alcohol. My rough calculations put it at around 7 1/2%

Default Is this a dark or light colored beer?


This recipe sounds great. Do you know what the SRM/ Color is? Thanks Donnie

Sounds great, but isn't that a lot of sugar for bottling? Any bombs? I was thinking of bottling my Orange Honey Hefe recently with 750ml of Tripel Sec, but no other sugars.

You caught me with the Orange Honey, did you add the Tripel Sec yet?

No, I used corn sugar instead... It was orangey enough. Check out my Recipe link...

It's Extract...with steeping grains. The title is just wrong.

as for the bottling sugars...yes....over carbed for certain. I will cut back the sugar to 2 oz....I may even try NO Extra Sugar. I'd sure say it's double carbed with the sugar from the rum...Maybe NO sugar is the way to go.

There's something in Randy Mosher's book about bottling with liquor and how to tell how much sugar is in it... I'll try and remember to look it up.

is this to advanced for a 3rd or 4th batch. i am going to be brewing next week...should i try it. the only thing i've done so far is take the can, dump it in with the dry malt extract and boil. cool, pitch some yeast and wait. is it much more involved than that?
