3.00 each Bananas 15 mins (more?)
1/2 Gallon Heavy Cream added @ 45min
Damn you! I was right in the middle of doing this. I have some changes though. This is what I got using exactly what he said as he went along.

Grains & Adjuncts
7.00 lbs 87 % Light DME 60 mins 1.046
1.00 lbs 13 % Lightly roasted Barley* 60 mins 1.046

Hops
1.00 ozs Cascade** 60 mins

Yeasts
1.00 pkg Safale US-05***
1.00 pkg Champagne Yeast - Added after 10 days in primary

Additions
8.00 lbs Bananas foster**** 45 mins
1/2 Gallon Heavy Cream added @ 45min

Primary
20 oz Dried Bananas 4 days
2 lbs Brown Sugar, Dark 4 days
Unknown Spices***** 4 days
3 lbs Bananas (in a cheese cloth) 10 days
1 lbs Lactose 10 days
Unknown Spices***** 10 days

Transfer to secondary after 14 days - as far as i can tell , he didn't do anything to it in secondary

Bottle after 21 days - he bottled with 40% more priming sugar (40% more than what? I don't know). Not recommended.

* He doesn't give anything more specific than "lightly roasted barley". This is probably steeped. I suspect he may have roasted his own because one of the only posts he has on this site that isn't this thread is helping someone who was trying to roast barley in their toaster oven.

** He doesn't specify an amount of cascade. I don't think it matters that much. You aren't going to be tasting hops.

*** He didn't specify type of yeast. Its anyone's guess, but US-05 is pretty popular among us new brewers...

**** It sounded to me like he had pre-made bananas foster beforehand. Just make 8 lbs of banana foster and put it in.

***** He only ever said "spices". Anyones guess. I suspect cinnamon was a main one.

Good luck to whoever makes this monster.

Keep in mind he was shooting for 12-13% abv. He would just keep adding things till it got there I imagine.

If I remember without looking back he added more bananas in secondary and I don't think they were dry. Looked like mush pig feed lol

The 40% was 40% more than the standar 1 oz of corn sugar per gallon. I think the bananas foster addition might be messy but it sounds like a good idea although I would leave the bananas out at that point and just add the saucy stuff. Spices should be allspice and nutmeg as well as cinnamon. Alton Brown on the food network has a wonderful recipe and he calls for these spices.

Thats a good point actually. I remember during the second time I read through this (I lead a very sad life) him saying that the bananas in the boil did not impart much flavor.

I was basically just trying to format his insanity into a nice readable recipe.

The original poster has been gone for at least 2 weeks now. Why do we keep this stupid thread alive? Unless someone else makes this beer and lives to tell about it, I second the motion for calling BS and shutting this insanity off.
