I just brewed my first batch of beer (extract shot at a witbier). When I bottle it I want to wash the yeast (wyeast forbidden fruit)and start another batch in a few weeks. So, I like variety. I know the yeast is high in esters :ban: and tends to smell like bananas. I'm looking for a suggestion for a different kind of ale (perhaps no wheat at all). Any good ideas for this yeast? I'd like to stick with extract or partial mash on my second recipe.
I know Weyerbacher uses it in their Muse Farmhouse Ale. I attempted my own clone and missed by a mile, but something along those lines would work. That, or a saison, although I'm not sure it would be terribly different than the wit.
