This one lasted about 3 hours at my son's grad party. Brewed with a friend that insisted on using cara-pils. I like munich so we compromised. Can't complain, it came out wonderful. He fermented with WY3068. I used a yeast cake of WL380 from a Weizenbock. I guess you can pitch onto a yeast cake from a 1.070+ beer and use it for a lower gravity beer. (take that nay sayers!). I started fermentation at 60F and ramped to 64F. I actually got banana notes with the WL380. Did not think you could get banana with this yeast but I was wrong. He got clove at that temp and no banana but too bad (it's my fermentation chamber!).
