Thanks, yep, that's basically what I'm doing - the German article I linked to above has a specific section how to push it towards banana (and another one for clove) which is basically increase the wheat, start at 18degC and let it free rise from there.If you are less a fan of clove than banana, maybe run the tmep up a degree or two. Someone told me to do that as fermentation progressed rather than start hot with this yeast, as high temps favour banana but a full ferment at 22 or 23 can overdo it... It is a glorious yeast tbf and I recommend it to anyone.
It got to 21.7degC (according to the Inkbird and Tilt) bit I've now switched on the heater and set it to 22.5degC. Probably what I'll do from here is temp it up manually 0.5 or 1degC per day.
