Just kegged up the first half of this batch and WOW! It is great I can not wait till I get it cold. It has a great balance of banana & clove with a good supporting rich wheat/vienna maltiness character to it. I am really digging how well balanced this seems to be with the yeast taking a slight step forward in the aroma and flavor. And the malt flavors that came out from the decoction, Holy Crap! they are great, I don't think I will be doing another wheat beer with out one.
It finished out at a 1.014, which was a little higher then I had hopped for was shooting for 10-12, but still in style guidelines, now the OG is a different story. 6.4% is a little high for the style, but it will do . The body on it seems a little thick, but I am sure that the carbonation will thin it out to where it should be.
Definitely a keeper of a recipe for me, why did someone not tell me of the wonderfulness that is Dunkelweizens!? I think I may toss the Choco malt out next time though, and see what a true traditional DW is like.
