Kegged yesterday around 4pm. First pour today around 3. Forced carbed for about 23 hours. Wasn't expecting miracles, but it will only get better, but it is already fantastic!!

question: no bittering hops? traditionally witbiers only have bittering (60 min) additions, and no flavor or aroma additions. are the 15 & 5 minute additions of high-alpha hops enough for bittering?

and if there is no bittering additions, why are you boiling for 60 minutes? you could just boil for 15 minutes. that's plenty to sanitize the wort.

I was going for an American take on a Belgian Wit, I liked the hop flavor and aroma in American Wheats and thought it would do well here too. That is also why I use 2row instead of pilsner, and no orange peel or coriander.

Yes there is plenty of bitterness from the late additions, and you could boil for 15 minutes, but with less boil off your efficiency will take a small hit.

Also I prefer the version with Climax hops ....I mean Summit hops over the Warrior, more flavor.

Should pair well, any citrusy hop would be good.

Well it depends on your setup, but for my setup my preboil would be 6.25 gallons.

I'm brewing outside in a keggle. Being that it has been kind of humid due to rain I think that may be sufficient. Thank you for the quick response
