I ended up leaving it in the primary for a total of 3 weeks and the smell was non-existent when I kegged it.
Exactly the same for me. I've made this 3 times now and it has happened every time.

Thanks for the help. Unfortunately mine is already in the keg. Hopefully with time it will lessen, good to know for the next batch.

I've had a cider batch that I kegged with a strong sulfur smell still present. The odor did not really die down with time in the keg. I've heard people have had good luck with continuously purge the headspace after the beer has been carbed.

Tapped this yesterday and it turned out great! My wife loved it. I hit all my numbers, fermented for 14 days at 68 in my new new fermentation chamber. Got a real nice banana flavor with no sulfur at all. Definitely a keeper. I used German Red Wheat and Canadian Pilsen (all my LHBS had) and everything else as the original recipe calls for. Great summer beer.

Hello all. Im going to be making this in the morning. I forgot to make a starter with a WL300 yeast. I get home from night shift at 9 am. Would it be worth it to make a starter and pitch about 8 hours later?? Or could i get away with just pitching the vial? Any input is appreciated, Thanks!

Well this is a sad day. Dunno what went wrong. Got an OG of 1.042. Never been off by more then a point or 2. Same setup, same grind, same everything. Dunno what happened. Is wheat beer harder to get good efficiency? This is my first one. Ah well. As long as it tastes good I guess a 4.5% beer is alright

I brewed this up a few weeks ago, got zero banana out of it, actually tastes just like Leffe (?). Fermented at 68...maybe I'll up the temp next time.

Brewing this again this weekend. It's been a summer staple in my keezer for several years now.
