Notes

Traditional greater than 50% wheat
Other mostly Munich
Melanoidin added to mimic decoction
Caramunich color to acceptable SRM
Hefe yeast for banana esters and clove notes typical in this style.
Style indicates no hops aroma so only bittering hops added.
Medium body dictates mash temperature
Salt addition focuses on ensuring enough Ca for yeast and ratio of SO4 to Ca to bring out a maltiness. Acid addition lowers our pH for mash conversion and fermentation.
On lower end of SRM scale should bring out bready lightly toasted sweet avoiding darker plum notes.
4 packs of yeast required due to the high OG.
