Since Koelsch traditionally contains wheat malt, you don't need to call it a wheat Koelsch.

You can't really steep those grains. You'll need to do a minimash.

I thought about a mini-mash. I was thinking 154-156 F for 30 min.

I would mash lower, like 148-149, but I don't think it'll matter much as long as you can convert all the starch.

A+ Nateo, I have made many Kolsch and I prefer to skip the wheat.
