Here's my stab at it:
Replace the grain with 6 lbs of Wheat DME (Briess Bavarian Wheat is a good example).
However, you won't really get the creamy mouthfeel and color of this beer without using flaked wheat. For that you'll need a partial mash.
Mini-mash 1.5 lbs of Pilsner malt with 1.5 lbs of flaked wheat at 152 degF for 45 minutes. I would suggest mashing with about 4-6 quarts of water. Sparge with a couple more quarts of water, and add that all to your brew kettle.
When the boil begins, kill the heat and add 5 lbs of Wheat DME, or 6 lbs of Wheat LME. Stir, turn the heat back on, and follow the rest of the recipe as normal.
