I love wheat beer. Especially in the Summer. I tried a Sam Adams Summer ale clone recently as my first AG and it was a challenging first attempt. How you thinking to keep things cool? My apt is usually air conditioned so I am hoping not to have too many problems.... gotta find some out of the way place though as my SWMBO mentioned of the carboy in the living room

I've got this honey ale you can look at. It is turning into a refreshing beer and it is VERY light. I missed the OG on this one by 7 points so mine is lighter than the recipe.
For extract you could substitute 5.5 LBS LME for the American 2-row or 4 1/2 LBS DME. If I brew this again I think I will use a tad more hops at the 30 minute mark. I think it tastes better at a higher carbonation level. I've got mine in a keg with the pressure set at 30PSI.
