ummm ... thanks, zimaclone? lol
majorvices - just about everyone has told me i have a little too much going on here. i will definitely remove the carapils. i've seen others add their spices to the boil instead of the secondary for holiday beers and the like. would that assist with taking out a bit of the sweet "bite" i may get from this brew?
i'm brewing this one for the SWMBO. she wants a wheat beer with a banana flavor. would it be as simple as brewing a basic wheat and using the yeast i've chosen, which is supposed to give off a banana aroma and taste? do i need the other spices? like i said, most people are telling me there's too much going on, but i'm not getting a whole lot of other suggestions. i just want to make sure i don't waste money on something that won't be drinkable.
i really appreciate your help, truly!
