most hefeweizens have high carbonation... here's a little snippet from the BJCP style guideline..
Quote:
The texture of wheat imparts the sensation of a fluffy, creamy fullness that may progress to a light, spritzy finish aided by high carbonation. Always effervescent.
Every hefe I was ever served in Germany was pretty well carbonated...

I mistyped your right...I mention to say most are highly carbonated (sometimes at a rate of 4 times a normal beer) I however just serve them like the rest....I apologize for my misspeak/typo

I did a version of this with wlp 300 and it came out great. There was a little bit of white pellicle when I bottled so there is a great sourness to it. I squeezed a lemon in one glass for an incredible citrus flavor. It was like summer shandy in the bizarro world.

Great recipe!!

I also used WLP300... it's the closest yeast i could source.... i brewed it cold so that the bana flavor would be subdued.. so, i just kegged it tonight.... once done, i had a pitcher left with no container to bottle it in... guess what i did, DRANK THE WHOLE THING FLAT! it was great!, warm and flat! i can't wait till this is carbed and chilled...... once of the best summer brews i've ever brewed. hands down.

LOL...thats what I call not wasting a drop...glad you like the recipe, it gets even better with Hef IV, but you did the smart thing fermenting cooler with WLP300 because it can really get a strong banana flavor to it!

Floods were a bitch, sorry about yer house. No worries on the brew, I may get a jump on Fall beers anyway unless the wife wants this made before then. Gimmie a PM if you ever wanna have a beer or exchange some homebrew, I hit the Batdorf every now and then.
