CORRIANDER!!! I did 1oz corriander and 1oz orange peel for 15min with wWyeast 3944 and it turned out great.

Definitely a great summer brew.
brew on

Coriander would be a good way to go to get closer to a Belgian wit.

Another option would be to sub the Pale with Pilsen and use WLP300. This would get you closer to a Bavarian wheat.
