Using this recipe as a basis for our newest idea... Pomegranate Wit. Adjusted the hops for what our LHBS had in stock, our alpha acids were off. Adding the juice of two poms at flameout. 14 more waiting for secondary fermentation.
Here's hoping!
CHEERS!

What do you think about using a saison yeast in this?

I'll be giving this a go this weekend, planning on using T-58 for it.

I just brought a list of these ingredients to my home brew supply store and the gentleman gave me 1 lb. of Breiss dried wheat malt extract. This is a fine powder and I'm sure this isn't the wheat malt suggested in the recipe to be steeped. Can this be mixed with water to start the wort instead of steeping the crushed grain type malt which I'm assuming was meant to be used, or will I need to go back and get a different type of malt? This will be my second brew and I'm just getting used to the terminology involved so I hope someone will understand what I'm trying to ask.

It is not the wheat malt intended to be steeped. It is malt extract, which is already in the recipe.

You can go ahead and make the recipe as is, using what you have, or head back to the store. Steeping the grain gives more flavor and head retention, and less sugars, so if you add an extra pound of extract instead of the grain you will have a different beer.
