Homebrew: American Style Dunkelweiss

I have made wheat beers before, but I believe this is the first dark wheat beer I have tried making.  Some of it is me just using what I had on had, so the recipe is a little odd.  Hopefully it turns out.

Steep for 30 minutes at 150 degrees:
- 9 oz. 120 L crystal malt
- 3 oz. 40 L crystal malt
- 1 oz. my home made smoked malt

Bring to a boil.  Add:
- 3kg. Coopers Wheat LME (50% wheat, 50% barley)
- 1/2 oz. "mystery hops" (whole) (from Michelle's parents - likely cascade)

After 55 minutes add:
- 1/2 oz. Willamette hop pellets (4.7 %AA)  (also, as I learned in Portland they pronounce it "Wilamutt")

Pitch Wyeast 1010 American Wheat

As per usual, I will let it ferment in the primary fermenter for a week, then rack to a carbuoy.  If I bottle it in 2 weeks it will be ready for the labour day weekend.
