Default Recipe Critique Needed

I need to make something smallish that I can pitch a Wheatwine w/Belgian yeast on to. What do you think? Anything you'd change? I have more of all the ingredients if you think I should bump anything up or down.

Oh yeah, also have a bunch of Crystal 60 if you think I should throw some of that in there.

First I thought 'use belgian pilsner or 2 row malt' but then figured you had the US pale already and I saw you have vienna. I'd up the vienna, maybe to 3 lbs and either lower the pale or keep it and go for higher gravity. I'm just thinking a more interesting malty profile would help. You're on that same thread with your crystal comment. Otherwise looks yummy!~

Yeah, I buy the 2-row in bulk, so I use that for most of my beers. Here's v2:
