I'd limit the wheat malt to 60% of the grist, but aside from that the recipe looks good. How much kiwi you adding? I'll be interested to hear how well the flavor comes through.

I'd probably encourage you to add those after the primary fermentation is done with. If you add them too early, the flavors will just get eaten up by the yeasties.

Your wheat is almost 86% of the grain bill. Generally it is recommended wheat be no more than 60%.

Is this due to stuck sparge concerns?
