Default Need some advice on a Hefeweizen recipe

I want to do a nice Hefeweizen for the summer and the basic recipe I am thinking about is the following;

6lbs Wheat Extract
.5lb Wheat
.5lb Cara-Pils
1oz Hallertauer @ 60 min
Safbrew WB-06

I wanted to add the Cara-Pils for body and head retention but is 8oz too much? Also for the Wheat grains which is going to be better flaked wheat, malt or raw? I want a smooth beer with good body, a slightly creamy mouth feel but not too heavy.

Thanks

Almost our recipe. 1/2# is OK. Mash at 152F and you'll have a yummy brew.

1/2 to 1lb of Munich or Vienna would be awesome, too. I use it in my german hefe's.
