Default Throwing a banana or banana puree into the primary

I'm wondering what it would taste like if I threw a whole banana or banana blended in water, into the primary for my next cheap generic wheat. Anyone ever try that?


In b4 "It would probably taste like banana!"

just ferment at a higher temp and make a Hefe weitzen if you want banana flavor. The higher ferment temp will cause banana esters.

I did this with prehopped bitter extract and about 1 lb of bananas. It fermented like crazy.

Or go to bottle shop and look for Wells Bannana Bread beer.

It's made from fermented banana mush.
