Yeast: Wyeast 3056 Bavarian Wheat
Yeast Starter: Yes
Aeration: 2 x 15 seconds (oxygenator and stone) or rock carboy for 15 minutes
Stage 1 Fermentation: 62°F - 14 days

1.) Add flour at the end of the boil (2 minutes remaing). This will give the permanent haze to the beer.
2.) Fermentation temperature of 62°F will result in a clove flavor profile. If you are looking for more of a banana flavor increase the temperature to 65-67°F. Also the yeast pitch rate plays a big part in the amount of the flavors created. A starter is important for this reason.
3.) Cleanliness and sanitation is a must with this batch as it is prone to being infected (low hops and alcohol content). Flavor is best as soon as it is kegged or bottled and carbonated.
4.) The rice hulls are added to the mash to help prevent stuck sparges.
