Ummm, sorry. I didn't realize this was in the extract forum until after I posted it. Anyway, there it is for anyone who wants to convert those base malts into an extract recipe.

Hey all

We just finished a keg of Belgian Wit that we brewed about 4 weeks ago, it was amazing! We actually happened to have some Blue Moon on hand to taste it against, and after drinking our brew I almost couldn't taste the blue moon at all, it was like carbonated water. Ours was full of flavor, nice body, good head, not bitter but still had hop character, prominant orange flavor with the notes of corriander, and was a little higher in ABV than we originally thought 4 weeks of preparation and waiting, and four hours to drink every last drop

3 lbs light DME
2.5 lbs wheat DME
1 oz Hallertaur
1 oz Cascade
1 oz SWEET orange peel (lends to a smoother, less bitter beer)
.75 oz Corriander Seed (cracked)
Safale US 05 dry yeast (Not sure on this, but it was definately safale. We used wyeast liquid belgian wit yeast for the second batch, currently underway)

Yield: 5 gal
Boil Size: 2.5 gal
OG: 1.045 (we think it was probably higher)
FG: 1.012

.5 oz halltertaur @ 60 min, .5 oz hallertaur @ 45 min, .5 oz cascade @ 30 min, 1 oz orange peel and .75 oz corriander @ 15 min, .5 oz cascade @ 5 min. Dumped entire wort into primary with 2 gal of frozen spring water, topped off with room temp spring water, aerated and pitched rehydrated yeast when temp was down to approx 70. Primary for 1 week, secondary 2 weeks, keg 1 week, drunk in four hours
