Just opened one of this after a day of brewing, wish I would have bought a couple more of them, very good beer. But it falls inside of the beers that I like.

I had one today. Good stuff. I'm working on a recipe. I'm thinking of pitching a Hefe yeast, let it go for a few days, then pitch a Belgian yeast...

It was kinda fruity. Also had some banana/bubble gum to it.

I definitely did not get any brett flavor. I'm pretty sure it's fermented with a hefe strain alone. Some of those can tolerate up to 10%.

It was my understanding that the yeast sent to Lagunitas was a special strain, so instead of trying to match what was used, I just captured the yeast from the Lagunitas Doppelweizen itself (like we did a looong time ago)... and made a few batches earlier this year with this yeast. Lagunitas lists 1.084 OG and 34.2 IBU' on the bottle so those are some good guidelines to start with. Mine were coming in around 8.8 to 9.3% ABV... makes for some pretty happy times! Just resurrected some of this washed yeast and made another double batch with a friend. Turned out to be the best so far. All my wife's lady friends love this stuff... The yeast posts some banana / gum notes during fermentation but this is not a lasting dominant note in the final product... definitely no Brett flavors. My first recipes were more Munich malt focused... with traditional noble hops. I recently reprofiled the recipe away from the Munich a bit as I've gone to longer 90 min boils. Fermentation was VIOLENT with this last batch peaking at ~ 36 hrs with a decent sized starter.
I emailed Lagunitas recently and they said they currently have no plans to release any more of their Bavarian Style DW I still have one bottle left that we're planning on sampling against the current batch of DW...
Cheers Jeff
