Default Partial Mash recipie for a Wheat beer?

Maybe I am not looking hard enough but I can't really seem to find one?

Has anyone used one they enjoyed?

Have you tried an allgrain then backing out on the grain what you want to use for DME or LME?

+1 on adjusting an all grain recipe.

Alternatively, you could just mash the wheat + specialty grains and then make up the difference with D/LME.

I have a partial wheat in secondary.

It's a hopped wheat.

7.2lbs Wheat LME
1lb Torrified Wheat
1lb Pale 2-row
4oz Amarillo
Wyeast 1056 American ale.
OG - 1054
FG - 1011

Steep grains @ 155 for 30 mins.
Add LME, bring to boil
0 mins add 1oz Amarillo
30 mins add 1oz Amarillo
15 mins add 1tsp Irish moss
5 mins add 1oz Amarillo
0 flame off

Cool, top up to 5 gallons at 75 to pitch.

10 days in primary
7 days dry hop on 1oz Amarillo
21 days bottle conditioning.

I bottle mine Wednesday. Tasted great pre-dry hop when I took fg. I also swapped out 5 min and dry hop for Cascade.

Cheers!

I thought the wheat didn't have enough diastic power by itself and needed the 2 row?

Actually, most malted wheat has more diastatic power than many barley malts. In the link, the wheat malt has DP of 190 (~35 is required for self conversion).

However, it did just occur to me that some rice husks would be a good idea if you went that route, to prevent a stuck mash.
