Are there any brewer's yeasts available to you? Can you buy some or get them from a local brewery?

Also, any more information on the varieties of German hops? They might have names like Hallertauer, Tetnang, Perle, Saaz, or Magnum for instance.

Unfortunately the girl at the malt distributor doesn't know.

I have access to Champagne yeast. I have been told it would be wise to buy the pale ale malt and play around with those. What do you think?

Are there small breweries or brew pubs that could give or sell you some of their yeast? I'm not sure that Champagne yeast has the same "sugar eating" and ester forming properties as an ale or lager strain - in short, I'm not sure it would taste like beer. Search the forums for anyone that's used Champagne yeast as their primary yeast strain for beer.

If you can get some beer yeast, in such large quantities the pilsner or pale ale malts are your best option. You could do a 50% wheat, 50% pale ale mix for a wheat beer. The other malts you listed are nice additions to these pale ale or pilsner base malts, but in small amounts. Not very practical for home brewing in 25kg increments.

Also, if the "aroma" hop is 10% alpha, that's likely sufficient to serve as your bittering addition, and flavor and aroma additions.
