This recipe is meant to me reminiscent of Sapporo, Asahi, and Kirin. However less bland. A clean yeast that really lets the hops shine would be great. This recipe would also be great fermented with WY3711 saison at 70-80F.

I should add that instead of flaked rice I cereal mash medium grain California grown rice.

I brewed this a second time with this recipe exactly and it is really really good. It was my first cereal mash so I slightly undershot my OG. It still attenuated to 5.25%abv so everything went great. The first version was all malt and had much more early hops. It was great but it wasn't the easy drinking style I was going for. Now the recipe gives it lower body and much lighter early hops. As a result it goes down really easy, but still isn't boring for the sophisticated palate. The flaked wheat has been removed for faster clarity, with a big hit to lacing, however it still has good head retention and some lacing.

Good day. I was curious as to how you calculated the IBUs from the whirlpool. And how close do you find this recipe to be to a Japanese lager?
