Chocolate Banana Ale – Nothing gone to waste!

Brew of the week: Chocolate Banana Ale

Nothing went to waste on this brew: The Malt was used to fertilize my plum/pear trees and make bread, the spent hops used as mulch for my chili trees, the boiled bananas for jam and the banana peels for cake and the leftover for compost!

What makes it chocolate-y? The chocolate malt grain for chocolate/coffee and slightly bitter taste;

What makes it banana-y? I used a whole bunch of chopped bananas during the boil;

What makes it an ale? Most of the grain used was Pale Malt; and used Ale Yeast;

To taste? Fuggles Hops

I don’t want high carbonation, so kegging the 10L seemed like much, much less work! I will update you on the progress!
