Recipe check and step mash advice please

I have borrowed this from 'Dave-O' on JBK but have adapted it slightly-

For 23l

2000g lager malt
1000g flaked (unmalted) wheat
1000g torrified wheat (all the local Hbs had)
1000g wheat malt
500g porridge oats

30g Saaz - full boil ( I may well substitute this for something similar)
2 oranges (standard oranges!) - 15 minutes ( I also may sub this for some dried orange peel)
10g crushed coriander seeds - 15 minutes
20g Bobek - flameout steep

Yeast: WB-06

I was planning on step mashing this fr 60 minutes at 66' then 30 minutes at 70', possibly mashing out to 72', thoughts gents please?

Drinking - Pater's Biere, Golden Mile summer ale, Brittania bitter, Red Sun Ryesing, All around the world IPA, Temptation Tripel, Old Shuch stout,
Bottled and conditioning -
Fermenting -

This will be a nice beer although the yeast is for a weiss bier and the recipe is usually for a white (wit) however it will still be good . I would drop the torri wheat or at least lower it to a 200g for a taste if wanted , for a wit i would use flaked for a weiss i would use pale wheat malt .
If you want a dry ish beer as per style then mashing lower is better (64c) for 20 to 30 minutes then you want a bit more body so finish mashing higher , i like around 68c for a wit and you'd want around 40/50 mins or a little higher for a weiss bier (71c) . Mashing out insures your profile remains and ends the mashing process , you need around 76c to do this , but avoid raising above 80 c as this may release tannins from the grains .
Hope it goes well for you .

Thanks Pittsy, unfortunately I couldn't get anything other than torrified and I realise the yeast isn't quite right but I've had it for a couple of months and I need to use it up, cheers for the advice :thumb:
