 Ferment a hefe with WY3038 at an ambient temp of about 60F. Pretty sure you could boil this down and use it as clove extract.

 

 I hadn't brewed one in years, but remember the one I did in the dead of summer at room temp. Wicked banana, so I decided to do one in my beer room since my fermentation chamber was occupied.

 

 A couple weeks ago we were at a local brewery, and I had a hefeweizen there and I was certain they'd added clove to it, it was so strong. Nope. Mine is identical.

 

 So now you know!

My favorite German Hefeweizen is Schneider's (not related, though I wish!) because it is more clove forward than others.

This one has actually mellowed significantly, but has little fruit ester. Just a smidge would be nice to balance it a bit, but I'm being finicky. It's quite drinkable!

I recently got a review of a Hefeweizen I brewed at work where someone said the beer was bad because it smelled like cloves. Lulz
