I would lose the rice hulls and one of the Crystal malts, probably the Carapils. I would also drop the IBUs or use different yeast. It just seems too bitter to work with that yeast...

You don't need the Cara, but if you kep it, 1/4 pound is plenty.

Keep the hulls though. That much flaked anything can make a sticky sparge.

I'd drop both the Crystal and Carapils, replace them with wheat and definitely use the rice hulls.

I agree that the IBU strikes me as high, but that's your bag; if you like hops, go fer it. With that hops schedule, you will obscure somewhat the ester profile from the yeast, but that's your decision. Personally I am not fond of hops in my Hefeweissen.

The lemon zest ought to add a yummy note!

Cheers,

Bob
