I've used wyeast weihenstephan several times. It is a great yeast. Ferments like a beast. It will definitely give the banana / clove flavors you are looking for. I start my fermentation in the mid 60's and let it slowly rise to around 72 over 4 day's. This gives me the banana/clove flavor. I have always reached FG in that time.

Have your blowoff tube ready and leave 33 pct. head space, very active!
