This a 3rd time and cut the 2row back a little and doubled up on the honey malt... might have been over the top just a bit #my thoughts

What is your fermenting temp and did you make a starter?

Temp at mid 60s. Can not remember what strain of yeast but it was white labs. There was some slow action the other day lie once a min

If you used WLP300 the hefeweizen yeast it has a very quick and pretty crazy fermentation at first. By day two it slows down considerably. Also, it ferments best at 70-72 degrees so your cooler temp might be keeping it at rest a little more than optimal.
Other than that you could have had some sterilization problems (hope not) or maybe dropped the yeast in while the wort was still too hot which might have killed some of the cells.
Fear not though. No airlock action doesn't mean no fermentation... Could just be slower than usual.

Without realizing this thread even existed, I brewed something somewhat similar to this over the weekend.

I usually do 4 gallon batches.....here's my recipe.

4lbs White Wheat
2.25lbs German Pilsner
0.75lbs Honey Malt

0.5oz of Tettnanger at 90minutes

50/50 blend of WLP300 and WLP380. Underpitched by about 35%.

Mashed at 153 and double batch sparged. Ended up with 5.65 gallons preboil and 4.4 gallons postboil. OG into the bucket was 1.057.

Fermenting right now at 18C (64.4F) in a 6.5gal bucket with airlock that is happily bubbling away.

I did a variation of this with less honey malt, a more even wheat/pilsner distribution and only the WLP380 over the summer that was well received. I am hoping my tweaks make it even better.

So my grain guy was out of flaked wheat, so I ran over to whole foods and found crushed wheat. Will this still work? Also checked my bottles and they are extremely cloudy, it would imagine some cloud is normal. But this is crazy

Yeah the crushed wheat will work.

And yes, this brew will most certainly be cloudy. How long have they been in bottles?

One week. I tried one last night and it was good. Tried a few tonight and the carb on two of them was lacking.
Planning on my second go around. This time I will keg. Also I was thinking of adding more of the honey malt like almost a pound.
