Default Quick Question Last Minute Question

So I am brewing a Witbier tomorrow. Recipe calls for:

5 lbs pilsner
5 lbs flaked wheat
1 lbs flaked oats

I plan to mash at 2 quarts H2O / lb of grain...

So my question is, do I include the adjuncts in the calculation which would give me 22 quarts of mash water?

Or do I exclude them and therefore only mash with 10 quarts of water?

I feel 98% sure that I should go with 22 quarts but figured I would verify... Thanks!

Are you going to use fresh orange zest or dried?

Fresh, of course! I just bought one of these for the job:

Amazon.com: Microplane Grater/Zester: Home & Garden

And since we are on the subject, How many oranges do you recommend I zest for a 5 gallon batch?

Thanks.

Thanks.
Biermuncher has a highly praised recipe and he uses 8 oranges for a 10 gallon batch.
