I bottled this today and as I was racking to the bottling bucket, there was about a gallon of trub on the bottom. I just decided to stop siphoning and bottle 4 gallons instead of 5. I strained it before going into the fermentor so I don't know if this was just thick yeast or what? The clear picture is the bottling bucket and the other one is what was left in the fermenting bucket.

How off would the flavor be with some midnight wheat added instead of the flaked wheat?

Had to pour my batch out. This for some reason was a nightmare batch for me. Smelled and tasted like wet dog. Everything that could go wrong went wrong with this one. First when I brewed (biab) the bag came out of the boil so large that it overhung my grille that I set it on over the kettle and a lot of the wort spilled down the sides of the kettle and onto my garage floor. My OG came out extremely low (1.013) with a final gravity of 1.006) so I wound up with a beer that barely had any alcohol AND tasted like sheet. All part of the learning process. However, I brewed BM's SWSBO Slayer and everything so far has gone smooth as ice. Looking forward to bottling it tomorrow.

I have seen this made with SO4 dry ale yeast. I personally like WLP400.

You can get flaked wheat at some grocery stores - I had to do that on one occasion, it was in the bulk section (and cheaper than the brew shop, I might add). Does your shop sell wyeast? If so, use their witbier strain.

I just bottled this using danstar belle saison. I'll post some results after a month of conditioning. By now I can tell that FG is 1.000, it's quite good but the bittering comes quite through. Interested in seeing how will change with time.

Cheers from Italy!

I've picked some up from one before. It wasn't a big chain store, though.
