white labs hefe IV and a 75F fermentation will get all the bananna flavor you want without putting mooshy crap into your beer.

Add the chocolate in the last 5 minutes of the boil and you will get more chocolate flavoring. I see no reason to boil it for longer than that, it will only realease flavors and scents the longer you boil.
I have added chocolate this way to a Porter and a Mint Stout. Chocolate came through nicely.

I'm going to be brewing a hefe tomorrow and thought about do the banana a a prep today. Would the bananas go bad if I did them today, or should I just wait until tomorrow during the mash to prep them?

Looking forward to this beer! Just brewed 2 days ago and fermenting is out of control.

Let me know how it turns out for you John. This was the first beer recipe I ever came up with all on my own (wasn't a clone/change to someone else recipe). It warms the cockles of my heart to see someone else wanting to brew it.

Hoping someone responds quickly. I am racking into the secondary and I am wondering if I over did it with the banana flavors. Should I continue to plan to add bananas to the secondary? How much banana is in the final taste profile?

It had a really nice banana flavor to it when I made it last. Not overly done, but you could taste them. Putting them in the secondary doesn't add much flavor, but intensifies the smell and bumps the ABV a bit.

Highly recommend this!!

All my kits have a similar heaviness / taste but this is unbelievable. I believe it got up to 6% which was great but surprising.

I left the secondary bananas out and still had a great light refreshing smell and aroma.

Did you follow the original recipe and fermentation times in the first post?
