I used a mixture of yeasts in my brew, but WLP400 works fine as well:

Belgian Wit (WLP400)

Make a 2 qt. starter at least 48 hours prior to brewing.

Good substitute for Cascade hop, in this context...?

When I do this again I'll probably use some Hallertau that I have on hand. Any descendant of Hallertau, Tettnang or Sazz would be appropriate (Crystal, Mt. Hood, etc.)

I'd also recommend tossing in a half pound or so of rice hulls to prevent a stuck mash. I didn't use any and didn't have any major problems, but why risk it? I used a high amount of flakes in this to get the Hoegaarden color, and it was spot on.

Brewed a 10 gallon batch of this a month ago, been a hell of a month but its finally coming out of the fermenters on Sunday, getting kegged up and hopefully drinking it down on the 4th! Let you know how it turns out.

Good stuff, just getting started on my second keg after me and my friends killed the first one of the fourth. I used wyeast belgian white beer yeast for this and it is spot on, incredible breadloaf flavor that hits you right in the face. As for the clones likeness to the original, spot on. The only thing different that I notice in mine is that I probably overdid the orange peel a bit, but that was somewhat intentional, and I couldn't get this batch to attenuate as much as I would have liked which left it a little sweet.

All in all a very good beer, and a dead shot for the original. Will definitely be a summer staple, if only in five gallon batches from now on.

Oh and i used hallertau instead of cascade, had a bunch of it and couldn't really see the point in using an american hop in this recipe, worked out great.

I've had my first batch of this on tap for just over a week and it is some tasty stuff. I omitted the coriander (already have a belgian blonde on tap with that) and also the orange extract. Added a single clove instead.

Went with the cascades, as I already had them on hand.

I appreciate your posting this. It's going to be my go-to Wit recipe.

Mine came out with little body...I attribute that to a cool and thin mash. Other than that, it's a great beer. I used Wyeast 3944, at around 67F or so. I think next time I would try a warmer fermentation temp

Does this have any of the tinge of sour of the Original?

This needed to be bumped up

Brewed this with a Belgian Abby II yeast and I had non beer drinkers slamming it down In fact, they killed my keg. So I had to brew it again. 2nd time wasn't as good as the first (still a good beer) so I don't know what I did wrong. But it will definitely be in the stable for summer beers.

Not quite sure how close it is to the original but it is a damn fine beer!

Thanks for the recipe!
