Looks pretty dang delicious. Are you just expecting to get the banana flavor from the wheat yeast? It should be prominent if you ferment above 65*F but I think more flavor would come from real banana or, as you said, extract. However, I don't think you will get any maple flavor whatsoever if you're using it to prime: it will all be consumed and the flavor will be lost. I'd recommend getting a decent amount of B-grade maple syrup and adding it after primary fermentation has completed or adding it to a secondary. B-grade has more non-homologous solutes (super-oxymoron) in suspension that won't ferment out and give you more flavor.)

On a side note, are you naming this one after the Jack Johnson song?

EDIT: also, 0.07# of Crystal 40? Personally, I'd get rid of either that or the munich and do 0.25# of the one you kept. If you're going to go with that, I'd steer towards munich
EDIT#2: (jeez I should read these more thoroughly!!!) I'd also recommend not using a secondary for this batch unless you want the yeast to drop out. Then you'd end up with a nice kristallweizen ^_^

lol yea the name is slightly going towards that song lol

I forgot to add that I am adding maple to the primary but I am also priming with it =].

I really love banana pancakes so i was wondering what it would be like as a beer. I have tried banana bread styled brews and they were delicious just not the flavor i was looking for.

My brewing partner is leaning towards the krystallweizen but I prefer my cloudy yeast ladden weizens

That's a cool idea. You'll have to let us know how it turns out. I love the food and the song, so would enjoy trying it someday as a beer...

You might consider using biscuit malt or toast some of your 6-row to get a little toast/biscuit taste. Just a thought...
