My brother is a big fan of witbiers, so we're making a batch this weekend. It's my second brew ever, so I was curious to get some advice.
First of all, here is the recipe. Got it from my LHBS:
6 lbs. wheat extract
0.5 lbs. Honey, Corn Sugar or Candi Sugar (I'll come back to this)
7 oz CaraPils
1 oz Belgian Aromatic
#1 Saaz (4.2%) 1.0 oz 60 min
#2 Saaz 0.5 oz 5 min
#3 Coriander 0.5 oz 5 min
#4 Bitter Orange Peel 0.5 oz 5 min
Yeast: Wyeast 3944 Belgian White
Here are my questions for all you HBT experts.
(1) Any suggestions on which I should choose form the honey, corn sugar, or candi sugar? I was leaning toward honey, but just want the best tasting brew.
(2) Any suggestions on tweaking the recipe a little bit?
(3) Any reason I shouldn't rack this to a secondary in a week? My buddy and I are planning on doing a dark Belgian next weekend and I will need the primary bucket.
