Default Type of wheat in Jamil's Hop Hammer recipe

Hey folks. I'm looking to brew the Hop Hammer recipe from Jamil Z and Jon Palmer's Brewing Classic Styles and I'm wondering what kind of wheat malt to use. I haven't brewed with wheat yet and his recipe simply says "Wheat Malt". When I look at several homebrew shop sites they have several kinds of wheat including pale wheat, white wheat, torrified wheat, unmalted wheat, dark wheat etc. I assume dark wheat is not the right one to use and I was leaning towards using the pale wheat. Which one would you suggest?

Pale Wheat is my guess. Maybe he will chime in.

Thanks for the reply Gila. Would it matter that he suggests wheat LME for the extract recipe? I had read somewhere on HBT that wheat LME is a mix of white wheat and barley.

I have often wondered the same thing in recipes that call for wheat and have always gone with white wheat.
