I wanted to get your guys' opinion on this one as I have little experience formulating my own recipes. I'm looking for a Wit with a medium body and mild honey aftertaste with little residual sweetness. How's this look?

4.13 lbs. (45%) 2-row Pale Malt
.45 lbs. (5%) Munich Malt
3.77 lbs. (40%) Flaked Wheat
.95 lbs. (10%) Honey, added to primary

.25 ozs Chinook @ 60 min
.50 ozs Mt. Hood @ 10 min

Mash at 154* for an hour. Boil 60 minutes.

It's not really a 'wit' without the proper Belgian-style yeast, but that looks like it'll make a fine American wheat beer.

I usually mash at 149 for wits, but I also don't add honey. I'd assume the higher mash would balance out the honey.

With that much flaked wheat, I'd do a beta-glucan rest, and a short (10-15min) protein rest.
