Thanks. That clone recipe I got from you is in the fermenter right now and will be bottled either this weekend or next depending on what kind of time I have.
I checked the gravity last night and it was right on and tasted damn good.
I did change that one up a little though. Did not use the grains you called for but switch it to 1# of crystal 10L and .5# of carpel steeped for 30 minutes in 1.5 gal at 155* then steeped for 10 minutes in 1.5gal (different pot) at 170* . Added the two pots together +3gal and brewed as normal for an extract full boil.

Quick question, when you say 4 large oranges and lemons, do you mean 4 oranges and 4 lemons or 2 and 2?

I handed out 6 of these to guys at work and so far everyone loves the beer and wants more.

No telling where this will end...

If you use a German Weizen yeast for the banana flavor then add the zest from 4 oranges and 4 lemons, add some raspberry flavoring, then cherry, etc., we can call it a Fruit Cocktail Weizen...

Hmm, now you have me thinking..


The strawberry hefe I have going now is really putting off A LOT of bannana which should go great with the strawberries I'm going to rack it onto.
