I would have gone with a dry yeast then. I don't think the banana esters will be good. And you have alot of it to drink if its funky.... just my .02

It will be good beer, the best yeast is Hef IV...however other yeast will work!

First batch of this went in the keg today. Came out 5.4 ABV woohoo
I used Wyeast 1010 due to no avalability locally of White Labs. Tasted so good flat out of the vile I could have drank a glass of it flat. I will post a picture when it carbs up.

Thanks Slim

Since I am drinking a pint of this outstanding brew right now, I thought that I would add that I stuck to the recipe with the exception of the yeast. I would of had to special order it from both of my LHBS, so I went with Safbrew WB-06.
I was a little worried when I first sampled after kegging and carbing up as the lime/lemon didn't really come threw, but after a couple of weeks it is really there now!

So I would say that using dry yeast will not effect the taste.

I have not brewed this beer, but I have found wb06 is a damn fine wheat beer yeast!

I just bottled this last night, going to be serving it at my Grandparent's 60th anniversary family get together and uncarbonated it tasted great! Nice lemon pop to it and some lime that I hope starts to be a little more assertive in a couple of weeks. Thanks for the recipe Slim! Great first all-grain brew!!
