Do your standard porter recipe with a tad more wheat. Ferment a little higher, let the banana come out.

hey all - final update on this one (which I actually named Hops on Pumpernickel)
scored a 41.5 2 weekends ago, didn't medal, but that's ok - specialty category can be a bit tough these days - great comments - only suggestion was the one judge wanted to see more roast or chocolate character in the nose and flavor, but I disagree with him there as i feel I get a hint and that's all I am looking for.
I still have a couple gallons left and its tasting mighty nice.
I'm a big fan of Nelson, but I only use it in a single hop IPA. Not a big fan of Vienna. Leaves a sort of grittiness to me. Try leaving out the Chinnook
I like Chinook as a bittering hop. It has more bite than the low cohumulone hops.
