Here's where I am at so far with my recipe,I'm working it in Ibrewmaster.

3lbs Muntons Light DME
2.5lbs Muntons Wheat DME
3lbs Flaked Wheat(steeping)

2.25oz. Saaz
Wyeast 3942

.75 oz. Coriander
1oz. Orange Peel

Any suggestions on additions or changes?
Thanks

On Ibrewmaster it shows my OG at 1.062. At what point do you need a yeast starter or is it not just determined by the OG?

I would reduce the amount of flaked wheat and change your DME to all wheat DME since wheat DME is already a mixture of two row and wheat. Maybe add about 8 oz of Aromatic in the steep to add a little complexity. So to make things easier.. something like 6 lbs wheat DME and 1.5 lbs flaked wheat and .5 lbs Aromatic. Otherwise looks good. IMHO you should always use a starter with liquid yeast when your OG is over 1.050. But to really do your beer justice, you should use the pitching rate calculator at mrmalty.com
