My wife loves a local microbrew's hefe that smells like banana bread. I'm going to use this recipe but bump the DME to 6# and ferment at about 72-74 degrees. SWMBO is actually going to brew it.

I used 6 lbs LME and .75 oz hallertau, recipe turned out great!

Brewing this batch was an adventure. Had my first boilover (which was probably me getting cocky and starting with too much water for my pot ), and had a bit of a mess during the cooldown.

Not even fifteen minutes after I set the carboy in place, the capper flies off....and not even thirty minutes after that, I got activity in my airlock. I can tell this brew is gonna be intense to watch. Wish I had the right tubing for a blowoff tube.

Finally cracked one after two weeks in bottles. Definitely needs a little more time to carb as I expected but this is my best batch yet and I want to thank the OP for the recipe. I'm a n00b and was getting discouraged after my first three batches were either hosed or not as expected, but this tastes great and it's the first batch I'm truly proud of. Thanks again!

Another good review has me more excited. Coming up on a week as of tomorrow in my carboy. Luckily it stopped making a complete mess, although I sure am going to have to mop our kitchen floor and clean a lot of towels and stuff when all is said and done. Heh.

I put this recipe into Brewtarget, and it comes up with 21.9 IBU's. the reicpe shows 14 IBU's. Even though the calculations are an estimate, this seems like a really big difference to me. Any thoughts?

With ~6lbs of wheat lme and .75 oz hallertau, Brewbuilder is showing 11 IBUS, which is about right, 20 ibus is way to high some this beer

There isnt much bitterness but what little there is balances out the sweetness nicely.
