Default Recipe input - Spring Wheat Ale

Hey guys, I am looking for some input on a recipe I have been throwing together. I don't have my BeerSmith file at work so here goes from memory:

4 lbs American 2-row
4 lbs White Wheat malt
.5 lbs Honey Malt
.5 lbs Flaked wheat

Mash @ 150F for 1 hr
Fly sparge at 168F

.25 oz Sorachi Ace @ 60
.25 oz Sorachi Ace @ 20
.50 oz Saphir @ 20
1 oz crushed Coriander seed at 15
.25 oz Sorachi Ace @ 8
.50 oz Saphir @ 8

Ferment at 68-70 with WLP001

Im looking for a light, lemony wheat ale with some sweetness from the honey malt. Don't know the SG offhand, but the ABV was predicted around 5.2%.

Any thoughts? Thanks!!
JZ

Looks good to me. If you're looking to have something flavorful, yet refreshing, I think you could get there with this recipe.

I'd like to know also, I'll be doing one soon and don't really know where to go with it.

It wasn't bad. If I brewed it again, I think I would drop the honey malt to 1/4 lb and use a cleaner American yeast. I don't feel like I got any of the citrus flavors I was expecting from the hops; I might add a little coriander to the boil as well.

Enjoy!
