I keep telling Julie “I’m excited about this beer!!!”
In reality, I’m excited about all of them, but this one should be super fun!! There is a good amount of Chocolate Malt, topped off with an even greater amount of pure coco.
There is some ‘beer technique’ play in this one. Based on the grains used, this is a Porter. But it’s fermented with Hefeweizen yeast, at a higher than normal temperature and smaller amount in an attempt to coax out some banana flavor from stressing the yeast (often considered a flaw in a Hefeweizen… unless you’re trying to get it).
Then a bunch of Organic Banana Extract will go in the secondary fermentation tank, just to hit that flavor out of the park.
