Default Help, making a Hefeweizen (All Grain)

So i found some recipes but nothing that im really looking for as I love the taste of Konig Ludwig, which has a citrus/corriander taste. So this is my idea

5.5 Gallons

Mash
6Lbs Flaked Wheat
4Lbs Pilsner Malt
8 oz's Flaked Barley
0.5 Lbs Rice Hulls

Hops
0.75 Hallertau (45 Minutes)
0.25 Hallertau (15 Minutes)

1/2 oz Bitter Orange Peel
1/2 oz Crushed Coriander (Boil for 15minutes)

Yeast
White Labs - Hefeweizen WLP300 (with starter)

Primary Fermenter: 7 Days
Secondary: 7 Days
Carbonate and Bottle, age for 3 weeks.


Does this sound alright? It's my 1st so any help would be much appreciated

Cheers!

Jason

Looks more like a wit--but even a wit has some malted barley in it. 100% wheat beer? It could work but conversion will take some time with all the unmalted wheat. Flavor will be bland. Wheat has very little flavor. That will show off the hops and spices.

IMO use 50% Pilsner malt, 40% raw wheat and 10% oats with a Belgian White yeast.

Pilsner may have a DP of 100, so your mash will have a DP around 40. Mash for 90 and it will convert.

With WLP-300 I wouldn't use the spices. It comes with it's own.

I liked the WB-06 yeast. It had a nice citrus effect.

See my thread. Good luck.

Usually for a hefeweizen I like to have at least 50% wheat, but your recipe looks more like a wit, and looks like it will be tasty. Let us know how it comes out.
