When I was putting together a recipe for a fruit beer I made, the hardest decision was determining where to put the fruit. I posted about it here, and listened to JZ's fruit beer episode, and determined that the best solution for the type of fruit I was using was to add to the secondary. I had a puree so it made decent sense at the time. I don't think adding it to the mash will give you significantly more sugars, especially if the bananas over ripe already. I'd be curious to see if the boil really gives you more flavor, as opposed to less too.

I dunno about using banana skins though. I didn't read Yooper's thread on the banana wine, so I don't know if there is a reason for it, but it seems unnecessary to me.

All in all, I think the two best places to add fruit are in the mash, or in the secondary, so either way I think you'll be fine. Just some fruit for thought, ok that was a bit of a stretch, but I couldn't resist.

my banana bread ale is dead on. tastes kinda like it and SMELLS exactly like banana bread.
just a thought
i did consider a dunklewizen but i was afraid the banana esters in the yeast would compound with the fruit leading to waaaay overpowering banana. In the perfect world of my head im picturing a fairly balanced beer. I had considered peanut butter and jelly and bananas but i dont know if elvis would have approved.

wlp300...if thats the same as wyeast wienerstephan then i have that on hand. What temp would you ferment at for this? it would probably be around 72-75 without the wet shirt etc(vs 65-68)....that would make for hell of a lot of banana.

And as for the breadyness. i do think that would go well which is why i threw in the biscut malt. What specific grains were you thinking? I could swap marris otter for the pale malt and up the biscut to .75....

that's a good idea, too...i think that turned out well and there is less oil to worry about.

i saw this late last night when i was crawling around on threads. Im gonna go with the powdered peanut butter for peace of mind. The orders in for 2 jars of chocolate and two jars of regular. I figure i can use a full jar of the regular and half of the chocolate if i need to. That should blend nicley. I also like the idea of dunkelweizen because there isnt a chance in hell this things gonna clear with the peanut butter additions.

heres one of the threads i have been referencing:http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f12/pean...-butter-61538/
1.5 jars of butter sounds like alot but according to his additions it didint come through as much as he would have wanted. I deffinitly wanna taste it but since its a lighter beer(stout vs dunkelweizen) i figure i should be ok with only 1 jar

you've inspired me to revisit and upgrade my banana bread ale.

this is pretty much the original grain bill:
6.00 lbs British Munich
4.00 lbs Red Wheat Malt
0.25 lbs British Chocolate Malt

and i'm thinking of adding:
0.50 lbs Flaked Oats
0.25 lbs Biscuit Malt (or maybe a belgian crystal)
0.25 lbs Carapils


for bittering, i'm thinking of using EKG, as it is soft, spicy and will compliment the chocolate malt.

WLP300 for ultra banana action and i'm going to throw some bananas in the mash for good measure

I have 3 more beers lined up and then this ones goin in the kettle so if you think of anything else- post away. Im going with the powdered peanutbutter and i decided not to go with the hef yeast, Whatever banana flavor i get from this i want to be the result of the fruit. Im either gonna go with a WLP029 Kolsch or WLP001 or possibly just nottingham. I dont want the yeast to contribute too much. I also am going to swap the fuggle for hallertau. and up it to slightly under 25 ibu's. Im using marris otter instead of two row also.

Thanks for everyones help

Anything ever come of this brew? Very curious about a peanut butter and banana brew myself. It might even be too late to get this ready in time for Elvis' birthday.
