Default 17 days still high krausen with wlp400?

I was wondering if this is normal with this yeast? I dont have much experience with Belgian strains. I brewed this Wit on 3/2 and still have a good 1.5 - 2 inches of krausen going on with no signs of slowing down it seems. The airlock is bubbling, but not rapidly.

Everything went fine with the brewday and recipe. I pitched around 68 and has been at room temp. (about 68 degrees) since. I was hoping to add some more Coriander as a dry spice after 2 weeks once the Krausen had fell and have this ready for Easter. Anyone else experience this with wlp400? Maybe its just me, I make a lot of IPA's and am used to us05 or equivalent. I want to start doing more Belgians though.. Thanks..

Ive used this strain twice, and both times it had krausen well after the gravity was stable.

Cool, I will check it tonight and see where its at. I didnt really think anything went wrong. I did what I always do when brewing. Just wanted a little assurance.

agreed- i always get that with the wyeast wit strain, should be the same strain as wlp400. just carry on with your spicing/racking; when it's done it's done. i don't think you'll see this with other belgian strains though
