Default Advice on an American Wheat

Trying to put together my first recipe for an American wheat beer. I enjoy Magic Hat's Circus Boy so I'm trying to brew something close to that. I'd like to stay away from the banana/clove taste and so far I've come up with this. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Mash Temp: 153 for 60 minutes
Batch Sparge 168 for 10 minutes

5.00 lb Pale Malt (2 Row) US (2.0 SRM) Grain 57.14 %
3.50 lb Wheat Malt, Ger (2.0 SRM) Grain 40.00 %
0.25 lb Caramel/Crystal Malt - 80L (80.0 SRM) Grain 2.86 %
0.25 oz Amarillo Gold [8.20 %] (60 min) Hops 7.8 IBU
0.25 oz Amarillo Gold [8.20 %] (30 min) Hops 6.0 IBU
1.00 oz Lemongrass (Boil 5.0 min) Misc (maybe just .5 oz)
1 Pkgs American Wheat Ale (Wyeast Labs #1010)

14 IBU
6 SRM

You might want to switch the amounts between the pale and the wheat.

Wheat beers usually have more wheat than barley.

The banana/clove will come from using German Hefe yeast. You can use American Hefe but regular Cal Ale will do just as well.

Not had Circus Boy, so I don't know if that's where the C80L and the lemongrass come from. The Amarillo will be nice.
