Default Mashing Wheat

Two questions:
1) I am trying to re make a recipe I did with Liquid Wheat Malt Extract (55/45 %), Except i'm doing All Grain this time. What kind of wheat should I use in my mash? Torrified? Flaked? Malted?

2) anything special I should take into account when mashing 45% wheat? Risk of Stuck sparge? Anything?

Thanks!

You can use flaked wheat. You should add a pound of rice hulls to the grain to avoid a stuck sparge.

I have a wheat beer in my rotation that is 50/50 2-row and malted wheat and 1# of flaked wheat. It turns out pretty well.

This. Whatever wheat you decide to use though, I can't emphasize the need for the rice hulls enough. When in doubt....use the hulls.

Malted wheat will be easier to mash/convert and give you a similar flavor.
As people noted, use rice hulls to prevent a stuck sparge with that high a percentage of wheat, unless you BIAB.
