I brewed a Belg Wit the other night
Used wheat dme, but I picked up the wrong yeast WL 550 must have been in wrong slot

Any ideas, I know its going to be beer, can this be an ale with wheat dme? Or can this be wheat with alt yeast

Someone started a thread on this exact topic a few days ago in the beginning brewing forum I believe. The general consensous was that you should go back and get the correct yeast.
Fermenting: Citrus IPA
Drinking:American Wheat, Pale Ale, Slovenian Blonde, Milk Stout
If I could figure out a way to SCUBA and drink Hombrew at the same time...well...I guess there wouldn't be anything left to try to attain in this life.

It will be fine. the 550 will add some spiciness to the beer. Personally I like the yeast.

Don't sweat it. Let it ride. It'll be great. Also, yes, it's an ale.
