Default Does this make sense?

Batch size: 5 gallons
O.G.: 1.049
IBUs: 12-14

6.6lbs LME Wheat extract
0.85 oz Tettnager hop pellets (4.5%AA), 60 minute addition
WLP300 Hefeweizen Ale yeast

Boil the hops with the extract for 60 minutes. Chill quickly to pitching temps and add yeast starter. This beer should ferment out rather quickly and be ready for the bottle within 10-12 days if your yeast was fresh.

Anybody got some say on how this recipe would turn out. Seems kind of light on the ingredients, mainly hops, but I hate hoppy beers. Recipe is called "easy summer wheat." Any comparisons to any commercial beers would be appreciated.

Hey, looks like a basic hefe recipe and should come out tasty. Watch your ferment temps close with that yeast. Too hot = bannana bomb.
