Allagash white clone questions
I've never brewed a wit beer before and thought i would give this a try. The clone i've found just by searching states:
Allagash White clone
5.47 lb Pilsner (2 Row) Bel (2.0 SRM) Grain 61.5 %
3.43 lb Wheat Malt, Ger (2.0 SRM) Grain 38.5 %
0.79 oz Tettnang [4.50%] (60 min) Hops 13.2 IBU
0.79 oz Saaz [4.00%] (60 min) Hops 11.7 IBU
0.26 oz Saaz [4.00%] (0 min) Hops -
0.26 oz Coriander Seed (Boil 0.0 min) Misc
0.26 oz Orange Peel, Bitter (Boil 0.0 min) Misc
1 Pkgs Belgian Wit Ale (White Labs #WLP400) Yeast-Wheat
My question is in regards to the wheat. If i recall from what i've read, most wit beers are made with unmalted wheat, not wheat malt stated here. This transitions to my second question, Allagash white is a beautiful beer, nice color and very hazy. I'm not sure one can get this from the wheat malt alone. Experts advice?
God i miss Northwest brews.....
