Hello
According to BJCP you should use more raw wheat in your grain bill. Personally, I would use some flaked oats instead of the munich and caraMunich malt. Also, your OG seems to be little too high.

Agree about ditching the munichs; with an srm of 8, it won't be a wit, since wit means white. The OG is a little above the guidelines (1.044-1.052), but not enough so to be worrisome. You didn't list orange peel or coriander, both of which are essential to a wit. I'm not a big fan of T-58, but you should be ok as long as you can ferment around 65 the first 3-4 days. If not, the liquid strains would be a better option.

that won't make a wit. wrong yeast & wrong grain bill, plus like kingwood-kid mentioned, you left out the spices. should make a decent belgian blond tho, albeit a lil smaller & darker
