Notes

Total mash time 100 minutes. Ferment & diacetyl rest @64-74° F for two plus weeks.

I've used both White Labs WLP400 and Wyeast Belgian Witbier 3944 for my money the WLP400 has a better flavor profile more inline with a traditional Hoegaarden

One to try might be Wyeast Forbidden Fruit 3463

Could also sub East Kent Goldings for the Hallertau hops
