    Ok, now that i think i've got my water additions sorted out, I'd like to get some feedback on a new recipe.
    The other night, my wife and i were talking about how the banana came through from the hefeweizen yeast in a recent batch. There was definitely a lot of other things going on in the beer, but the banana was definitely (not defiantly :D) there.
    Anyway, we got to talking about using that yeast in a chocolate milk stout to make a sort of dessert beer. Throw in a hefty dose of oats to thicken things up, and it sounds really good to us on paper.
    Thanks in advance

    Hi
    Interesting ideas about banana beer, I like to make a beer with only the bitterness of the banana and that the bitterness is on the palate. It possible?

    Interesting. Just wonder if the roast might get in the road of the banana and overwhelm it in this beer. Looks tasty hope it turns out as your imagining.

    Where’s the chocolate coming from? Maybe I missed it.

    Got ya. I looke at the recipe but was thinking there might be nibs or something to add more actual chocolate flavor. Looks more like a porter to me with no r

    Disregard. Didn’t realize this was an older thread
