    I've always loved banana bread beer and now I'm successfully brewed 2 beers I'm considering having a shot at a banana bread beer.

    Does anyone know of any recipes?

    Not really... I did it once adding some home made banana bread to the mash or was it at flame out - I forget but!.... Woah! Talk about increased gravity! Excellent beer - haven't made it since though. a bit messy.

    I would start with some biscuit or Victory malt for the bread like flavor. Not quite sure how to get the banana other than maybe some banana liqueur or banana extract. You'll also need to determine what type of non-fermentable sugar if you want to retain any sweetness.
