I love this beer.

I wanted intense banana aroma and flavor so i added 6lbs of bananas to the entire batch. After 3 weeks in the bottle it has a Gerber baby food banana smell and taste but with a thin body. After 2 months in the bottle the banana flavor lessens and honey is very prominent. Mash this beer at 154*F

Malt Bill:
6 lbs German Pilsner
5 lbs Wheat Malt
8 oz Victory

.60 oz EKG at 60 mins
.40 oz EKG at 10 mins

I fermented with Wyeast 3068 at ROOM TEMPERATURE, so about 76 ambient to achieve banana phenols and esters.

3lbs 3 oz Ripe Bananas, peeled, frozen, thawed added to the primary
3lbs 3 oz Ripe Bananas, peeled, frozen, thawed added to the Secondary
