Tonights brew

Given I’m still waiting for my order from THBC to be shipped across from Ireland, I’m having to look at alternatives for tonights brewvening and have come up with this. Any opinions before I mash in??

Mangrove Jack – Bavarian Wheat Yeast M20

I’m looking for a normal, standard weissbier with a good flavour from the yeast, so I might ditch the Hallertau and go purely with the Tettnanger, or ditch the tettnanger and go purely with a Hallertau 15g for bittering and thats it.

Its a fairly standard recipe, but am gonna mash at 65.5 for maximum fermentables to avoid a malty mouth…
