Brewing a blue moon clone

Trying to brew something similar to blue moon, so did some research and came up with this recipe.
I have made few changes to it, like adding a bit of crystal 40L malt to give a little more color and carapills to enhance the mouth feel of this beer.

This is for a 5gal batch:

4# Briess 2 row
2# Bris white wheat
1/2# Carapils
0.3# Crystal 40L
4# Flaked wheat
1# Faked oats
1# Rice hulls

Mash at 158F for 1h

1oz Hallertauer for 60min
0.5oz Cracked coriander for 10min
2 begs of Chamomile tea for 10min

Mash efficiency at 70%:

Added to primary fresh orange peel from 1 orange, soaked in vodka for 2 days.
Using dry yeast S04 at 67F.

Trying to get a thick beer with a sweet finish. Will report the results once it is done and aged for at least 2 weeks.
