Notes

Fermented for 2 days at 20deg.C at 15psi in fermentasaurus, then slowly let it rise (1-2 degrees per day) until it hits 28. Once yeast dropped out reduce temp. to 7deg. C., and let it sit on the yeast cake for 1 month. Pressure transferred to 19L ball lock keg. Carbonated to 2.5 volumes and stored at 3deg C for 1 week. Final Gravity 1.014 after 16 days, 6.84% ABV. Distinct banana-like flavor similar to Wyeast 3068.
