Default Aventinus Doppelbock Clone

So I purchased a Mini-Mash Aventinus Clone kit from a respected online company. They sent me:
9oz Crystal 40L
1oz Chocolate Malt
1/4 lb Melanoidin
1 1/4 lb Geman Wheat
1/2 lb Munich Malt
1 1/4 German Pilsner
(All Grain Pre-Mixed and Pre-Crushed)

8 1/2 lbs Liquid Wheat Extract
1 1/2 oz Hersbrucker for bittering
1/2 oz Hersbrucker for flavor

Hefeweizen Ale Yeast WLP 300

I am wondering if anyone has brewed this before?
Any changes you might make?

Planning to brew on Sunday. I am hoping to have it for a mid August Party. Hope I am not pushing it.

Cheers
Matt

I was reading through Clone Brews and this is what they say:

9 oz crystal 40L
1 oz Chocolate Malt
4 oz German Melanoidin Malt
8 oz German Munich Malt

8.5 lbs M&F wheat DME

1 oz Hallertau Hersbrucker @ 3.5% AA (60 min)
1/2 oz Hallertau Hersbrucker (15 min)

1 tsp Irish Moss (15 min)

Yeast choice #1: Wyeast 3333 Garman wheat yeast
Yeast choice #2: Wyeast 3056 Bavarian wheat yeast
(all the yeasts in this book are Wyeast)

1 1/4 c wheat DME for priming


Pretty dang close to the recipe you've got there I was thinking about brewing this 'cuz I love me some Aventinus. I'd love to know how it turns out!

Cheers!

Would you use the Irish Moss? I was thinking that Aventinus, being a darker Hefe type, would not need the Irish Moss. I have some, and can certanly use it, but I was not thinking I would. What are your thoughts.

I did get the kit from Austin, but I could not find out the recipe till I got it, and I was not sure if they would like the recipe published, but the cat is out of the bag now.

I am going to brew this recipe tomorrow night but I added some extract for a 6 gallon batch. Should be tasty!

So how did this turn out? I have been looking for a thread about successes with Aventinus Dopplebock clones, but can't seem to find much out there.
