Haha had you test it yet?

No, I need to keg it. This is already way way too high ABC for a hefe, but I want to focus on things that will bring the fruit and spice esters out so I mashed too hot and are fermenting very warm.

I'm gonna split the batch when I kept it tomorrow. Half will get a homemade banana extract (6oz of dark rum run over 1lb of bananas in a strainer a few times) while the other half will get an orange peel/corriander/clove/allspice extract.

In the fermenter right now, it's a strong hefe w a big bite. But all the odd flavors I specifically want in there are muddy and non-distinct.
