mmm...i love me some styrian goldings. you should use them as a flavor hop, tho.

that goes against my standards for a true dunkelweizen, but this is BANANA BREAD ALE!!

looks like you're going for a little less alcohol, using liquid and only 2.5 lbs LME.

that's going to be nice and chewy from the carapils.

looks good, let me know how it turns out!

unfortunately.....I don't have a "see-thru" fermenter.


This first day fermenting, the airlock smells sweet and bananaish..... but now heading into day 2, it's starting to acquire a sulfurish or maybe skunkish smell.

I wish I had a picture of SWMBO's face when she experienced a Dunkelweizen Krausen kicking in while in the condo
She called me at work, saying my beer exploded into that little cider bottle with the tube in it.. is it supposed to do that? It smell yeasty , like bread.. is that good?


lol.
