3 Gallon Boil, 5 Gallon Batch

1.00 lb Pale Malt (6 row) US
2.00 lb Light Dry Extract
1.00 lb Wheat Dry Extract
2.00 lb Wheat, Flaked
0.50 lb Oats, Flaked
1.50 oz Goldings, East Kent (60 min)

0.75 oz Coriander Seed (Boil 10.0 min)
0.75 oz Orange Peel, Bitter (Boil 10.0 min)

1 Pkg Wyeast #3944 or White Labs WLP400

Mash Flaked Wheat, Flaked Oats, and 6 Row together at 155 degrees for 75 minutes

Bring Wort to boil then add Bittering Hops and Wheat Dry Extract for 60 mins

At 15 mins add the Light Dry Extract

At 10 mins at the Coriander Seed and the Orange Peel Bitter

I would like to know if I am mashing the Oats and Flaked Wheat correctly. I was told to mash them with a pound of 6 row. Do I just throw it all in at the same time and mash away? I am planning on using a mashing technique similiar to Deathbrewers easy partial mash thread, and the recipe is a bastardized version of Beirmunchers blueballs. I was going to put the Flaked Oats and Wheat and 6 Row in a big grain bag then in a pot at about 160, then transfer to a 155 degree preheated oven for 75 mins, then strain the bag with my top off water to bring it up to boil. Pleae critique, thanks ahead of time.

That's a lot of wheat for a pound of 6-row. I'd consider getting some iodine & read up on starch testing. Should work though.
