Default Orange Blossom Honey Wheat opinions

I've brewed this extract/partial twice. excellent if you like this type of beer. wife loves it with a slice of lemon by the pool on a hot summer day. I enjoy it as well recipe as is BUT how would the flavor change if I didn't use the marris otter and the crystal 10? I'm not sure if it would make much difference just trying to KISS in life? also will or does the honey malt convert itself/flaked rye by itself or do either even need to be mashed?

thanks in advance

I don't think the Honey Malt will convert on its own or convert the Rye. The Rye won't convert on its own either, I don't believe.

I would keep the MO in order to convert these two if you want to keep them.

Marris Otter will give a flavor similar to biscuit, but with 1# it might not be missed. If you steep for long enough the MO will convert the honey malt and rye that both must be mashed. If you and SWMBO liked it, I wouldn't mess with the recipe. Those are enough changes to make a difference.
