Recipe Type: Extract   
Yeast: WLP300 Hefeweizen Ale   
Batch Size (Gallons): 5   
Original Gravity: 54   
Final Gravity: 12   
IBU: 18   
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60   
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 1 @ 72   
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 2   

6 # Dry Malt Extract (Wheat)
.5 # Cara-Pils

1 oz Saaz Hops (4.4 oz) @ 60 minutes
1 oz Saaz Hops (2.3 oz) @ 20 minutes

4 # mashed banana's in the primary.
2 # mashed banana's in the secondary

This was originally supposed to be a Chocolate Banana Hefeweizen but you can't taste the chocolate at all. We added 3oz @ 60 minutes. There is a light chocolate smell but that's it. Beer has a very strong banana flavor and taste. Nice and light bodied but still a good mouth feel. This was an instant hit at a party I threw. Next time I brew it, I'm increasing the chocolate.

I am married so maybe I'm going blind from to much masturbation, but I just don't see anything posted that would give the chocolate flavor.

How about using Wyest 3068 for some banana taste?

The place by my house (Maryland Home Brew) only sells White labs yeast. This time I'm adding more bananas. I've got 4 lbs in the fermentor (which required a blow off valve this batch) and I'm adding 3 lbs into the secondary. Iíve decided that this one will be only banana and my next batch will be another try at chocolate banana.

How did the banana look after they fermented out? Liquified mush?

Also did you have any blow off issues and was syphoning easy?

Curious, 4lbs after they were peeled??

I have this going right now. Banana Cream Ale I'm waiting for this to take off... right its in the 2ndary w/o doing much.

Yeah the bananas were just mush when all was done. It was a bit of a pain trying to siphon as the liquid levels got low. The siphon got clogged once or twice but no big deal.

We had to use a blow off for the primary. We didn't have one at first and when I got home the bucket was ready to explode. The airlock was filled with kreuson and the bucket was actually hissing. I managed to pop the airlock off and a blow off valve on.

It was 4lbs pre-peeled. We peeled, boiled, and mashed them. It took forever for them to get cool in the fridge. I'd suggest doing them first. We made it again with 4lbs in the primary and 2lbs in the secondary. Itís in the bottle now but I tasted some before we bottled and even flat it was fantastic.

My banana cream ale has done nothing in the 2ndary. Its like dry hoopin' w/ banana's. It smells good and tastes nice. I didn't have much more than a spoonfull. I can't pass judgement until fresh glass get swilled.

Yeah it didn't do anything in our secondary either. At least nothing visible.

No this is weeks! - This is a general rule of thumb.

1 week for fermenting.

2 weeks for clearing and in this case time for flavor absorption.

3 weeks for carbing.

6 weeks total
