I say this with all due respect, but you're kind of all over the place here. I'm going to give
some advice, but this is strictly based on my knowledge and personal taste. Yours may
differ.14% Crystal ...

That is a LOT of flaked wheat. Not saying you couldn't use that much, but it is a ton. I'm also
