That's cool, always good to have more options. I'd be interested to try the Bavarian wheat strain. Haven't tried the WB-06 from Fermentis yet, but I've read that it's not very banana-y.

thanks for the thoughts everybody.VERY good choice! I was going to suggest simcoe and chinook. I brew a killer black IPA that has simcoe, chinook, and cascade. I use blackprinz malt for the dark color. It's very smooth and mellow.
we decided last night to do something along the lines of sublimely self righteous since i've got plenty of chinook and simcoe and amarillo on hand.
I had an AIPA that was cloudy as all get out and had some pretty severe "yeast bite". I left it in the keg for about a month at 38F. After the first two pints poured cloudy again, I figured there was no hope. Pint 3-40 were awesome though, and the hoppiness held up pretty well. I brew that recipe roughly every three months. (Without the cloudiness now) I still leave it in the keg to cold condition for a while before I drink it.I'm wondering if this is what's going on with my black IPA right now. It's not the same as it usually is. Of course, there are a couple factors that make it not as good as normal. I used a hop bag in the boil because I fermented it in a keg. It also is almost a percent higher (7.7% versus 6.8%) than normal. So, I feel the beer is overly bitter, and not as much hop aroma and flavor as normal. I'm thinking some time will help it, but I'm questioning using hop bag now. I'm not worried about utilization in terms of bitterness, but more towards aroma/flavor. The beer got 5oz of hops at flame out and did a hop stand for 30 minutes. It's also a 3 gallon batch. So, I'm not wild about it...kind of a bummer. Maybe it's yeast bite because it's still pretty young for a 7.7% beer, maybe it's because I used a hop bag...don't know. But maybe a month in the keg will do it a lot of justice.
Hmmmm....Yes, but they'll charge the same for it, I assure you! And the consumer will be none the wiser.
"Consumers will be giving up about an ounce of beer to get that conversation started. The new can holds 11.3 ounces rather than the standard 12 ounces." Maybe getting less Bud is an advantage?
50 gallons lagering in corny kegs as I type this.I really need another chest freezer and more kegs so I can do this...That sounds ridiculously awesome.
I haven't but I would. You could probably use the same keg for lagering and then put it on tap.Quite, it works rather well.
