Default Witbier question

Hi, this question is for witbier experts I'M planning my first witbier next weekend and I wonder if there are tips to make it troubled as commercial wit. I know it is not the best thing to do with wit, but I plan to keg it. Should I transfert part of the yeast bed into the keg? So, do you have tips for me to make this wit a success?

My recipe in my sig (The Dunkelweizen), goes to keg within 10 days, and there is more than enough yeast to make it a bit cloudy.

After it is carbed, shake the keg a little to kick it back out of suspension.

So, you keep it 10 days to primary and then keg it? How many time before start drinking it?

If I drop 30PSI on it for the first 2 days, then back it off to 12psi after that, I am drinking it 14days after boil. My first batch reached final gravity on day 6, and I kegged it on day 8 after confirming a stable final gravity.
