Its slow on the board these days so I'll throw this one out for comment. I know its not a traditional yeast choice.
10 lbs german pils
2 lbs unmalted wheat
8 lbs malted wheat
1/2 lb acidulated malt
wyeast 3068 fermented low 60's
3/4 oz magnum for about 18-20 ibu's
1/2 oz grains of paradise
1/2 oz cardamon seeds
1 oz sweet orange peel
I wanted bitter orange peel but I they didn't have any when I was at the lhbs on Friday. Should I skip the sweet peel?

It's an interesting hybrid of hefeweizen and witbier. I might find the cardamom excessive (in my opinion a very little goes a long way), but that's a matter of taste.

That gives me gag reflex just reading about that much cardamom.. I once put about that much in a beer and it was beyond extreme.

I've since read several places you only need a few (meaning <10) of the tiny little pods. Just an FYI, maybe your tastes are different than mine.

To be honest I have not used these type of spices before. I did cut the amounts in half and added them at about 5 minutes before chilling. The wort did not taste over the top "spicy" but you have me worried now but it is too late to do anything but ride it out.

You can always blend it with another batch of spiceless brew.
