So my brother-in-law wants me to brew a Dos Equis lager type of beer (not the amber Vienna lager) for his wedding. Here's what I came up with. Any critiques or suggestions?

1.00# Carapils/Dextrine (5.97%)

I don't drink a lot of Dos Equis Special, but I would be surprised if it had a late boil hop addition. I'd just drop the 0 min addition and leave the rest of it as is since it looks solid otherwise. Good luck.
