Default Extract Wheat beer

So I'm trying to put together an extract wheat beer for my Chiristmas sampler, and so far this is what I'm thinking (I'll balance the exact extract weights with Beersmith later, this is off the top of my head after doing some research here):

3 lbs pale malt extract
3 lbs wheat malt extract
.5 oz cascade 60 min
.5 oz cascade 15 min (maybe 10 min?)
WLP011 yeast
.5 lbs caramel malt 40l (steeping)

And maybe some ground coriander?
Fresh orange zest into primary?

If I do use fresh orange zest, how much should I use? And how much coriander?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Primary: Creek Dog Stout x2, Two Dogs IPA, Grinning Kelpie Wheat
Secondary: empty :(
In Bottles: Belgian Wheat

I'd use 100% wheat malt extract. Most wheat extracts are 65-35% wheat malt/pale malt. I'd omit the 40L caramel entirely.

How much spice to use depends on how emphatic you want it to be. Do you want it to slap you in the face? Or do you want just a hint?
