I would personally go 10lbs 2 row, 1 lb White Wheat, 1 lb Table Sugar, and I calculated with Amarillo but do like 1 oz 30, .5 oz 15, .5 oz flame out.
Also while I love 3724, make sure you can ferment at higher temperatures or have time for it to ferment out.
Are you thinking 70-75 degrees? What are the advantages to fermenting at a higher temperature?
I would start at 68...after a few days ramp to 74, if it still has points 78, etc....if you do a search for that yeast variety or read the reviews on NB site it goes into detail. I will search for the threads when I am no longer mobile.
I did a mini mash because my LHBS isnt have enough belgian pils.
I have not tried this side by side yet but I am very happy with the results.
Search Sofie in the Wild Forum/ Good Luck
