Default Will this wit grist convert properly without a step mash?

Hi guys

I am looking to brew a wit with something in the likes of 50% pilsner, 40% flaked wheat and 10% flaked oats, but I am doubting whether it will convert properly without doing a step mash? I have not yet embarked on step mashes.

Oh, and what are people's general take on wit grists, what is optimal and why?

Cheers!

Cant tell you whats optimal but i can tell you what worked for me. I make a wheat that is pretty much 50/50 pale malt and wheat malt with a little flaked wheat and it turns out good doing a single batch sparge. I dont think i have seen a recipe that used that much flaked wheat.

You don't have to step mash, the lower temps are protein rests, just do a single infusion 148-150F

If you have hazing issues in the finished beer you can do an extended cold crash or using a fining agent.
