Yeast included with this kit: US-05

Notes: With wheat making up almost 50% of this grist, it highly recommended to add a pound of Rice Hulls to the mash.  Rice hulls are not included with the kit ingredients.  Unconventional yeast for a Belgian Wit but it's cleanliness allows for the citrus notes from the spices and the flavoring to shine through.
