I love the Hefe IV yeast from White labs. It is distinctly a German wheat yeast, but it is smoother and has much less banana than other examples.

triple decoction is best but a step infusion with rests at 128, 148, 154, and 168. I have used a hybred mash infusing from 128 to 148 and then doing a decoction from 148 to 154 and then a thin decoction from 154 to 168. Each rest was about 30 min.
