-**Brew Notes:** 
- 
-Brewed on parent'​s bottom porch.\\ 
-Water from outside tap (house water) \\ 
-Rinsed, filled kettle to 8 gallons, brought to 163F \\ 
-Filled grain bag outside kettle, tied off loosely, placed in steaming basket, lowered into kettle & stirred. \\ 
-Strike temp after 2 min stirring: 157.5F \\ 
-Fell to 156F within 5 minutes. \\ 
-Ran burner once every 20 minutes, kept in 151F - 158F range, mostly right on 155F. \\ 
- 
-Iodine test (drop of iodophor in small sample): \\ 
-  * 60 min - black swirl 
-  * 90 min - black swirl 
-  * 120 min - black swirl, give up 
- 
-Unmalted wheat has no enzymes, couldn'​t convert, gave up.  Probably full of unfermentable starch. \\ 
-Final volume low (didn'​t fill better bottle, probably exactly 5 gallons) \\ 
-OG very low considering volume loss. \\ 
-Cooled to <80F in under 20 minutes, pitched yeast, stored in basement (outside temp in the 40s-60s this week). \\ 
- 
-High krausen @ 36 hours, bubbling furiously. ​ Switched from blow-off tube to S-lock. \\ 
-Ambient temperature measured to be exactly 65F. \\ 
- 
-48 hours: still bubbling frantically,​ added 3 sliced, boiled, and smushed ripe bananas to primary (still hot). \\ 
-6 days: SG 1.016, no activity, lifted onto stand so it can settle elevated. \\ 
-7 days: Bottle with 7 oz corn sugar, estimate 3.4-3.6 volumes CO2 
-Only 4.2 gallons ended up in the bottling bucket, meaning short by over a gallon. ​ Next time use 1.5 gallons more. 
- 
-**Taste Notes:** 
- 
-03/20/2011 - (21 days) Bottle was chilled for 24 hours. ​ Giant gusher! ​ Film stuck to bottom of bottle. ​ Good aroma of wheat, sweet fruitiness, some banana and flowers. ​ Thin mouthfeel, sweet wheat beer forward with a noticeable banana in the middle, and a lot of grassy, fresh grain taste at the end.  A hint of tartness, almost like drinking a lemonade, could be a decent refresher in hot weather. ​ Low carb after sitting for a while, so maybe it just hasn't had enough time to finish carbing.
