I planning on brewing a Hefeweizen this weekend. The LHBS only had one packet of the Wyeast 3068 that was a little old. Even with a starter, I will be under pitching. Which I'm not too upset about, because I'm hoping for a lot of banana esters. I am worried about any other undesirable flavors though.
With the starter, I'll be at about 0.41M cells / mL / °P. Or about 100 billion short.
I also bought a vial of WLP380. Which is more clove than banana. Again I'm hoping for lots of banana.
So my plan is to under pitch with the wyeast, which should increase the banana esters. And then re pitching with the WLP380 to clean up any unwanted off flavors. Does this sound reasonable? I'm still pretty new to homebrewing.
