Beer Style: Dunkelweizen  (15B)
Recipe Type: all-grain
Yield: 5 US gallons



I ended up repitching the yeast from a previous batch (Room-mates bavarian weizen, D&M Brockington) and the yeast didn't create the banana & clove taste, but the aroma was right on. I think the yeast had just been used too many times.

The beer scored a 37 and NHC and a 30 at Heart of the Valley. The NHC judges thought I'd used chocolate malt to get the color, go figure. I personally think the color ended too dark. Next time I'm going to try 3 lb Caravienna, 2 lb English Pale, and 7 lb Wheat.
