Then bring to boil, stir in Wheat extract (with pot off heat source) until dissolved and bring to a boil again. once boiling toss in 39grams of hallertau and boil for 60 min....then cool and proceed.

If you dont have to power to bring 13.2L to boil then I would use 9.5L of water and when its time to add the hallertau I would add 51G.

Either way you will end up with 15IBU and there really is no need to add a late addition of hops unless your experimenting, or want the hop aroma (which really isnt part of the style)
That is not correct because my ingrediens lowers the IBU a bit, So if I think of boiling 13L of water and then add 50 grams of Hallertau, I'll get an IBU of 15.66. Is that a good way to boil? But I can't use tap water to fill up to 20 liter can I? How shall I get a bacteria free water to fillup?

you will have to top up with bottles spring water. the 13L of water or the 9L in the previous post was with your ingredients already in the pot with the water. 13L of water and 50 grams of hallertau will get you 15ibu then after you cool just top off with spring water.

In brewers friend in the recipe section fill out your recipe and change the boil and batch sizes....when i put your recipe in 6lbs wheat LME, .25lb of flaked oat and wheat and hallertau into the recipe i swicted the batch size to 5.5 and the boil size to either 2.5 or 3.5 gallons and then tweaked the hops amount until it read 15IBU. So the recipe OG/FG and IBU will read what you will end up with AFTER you top off with water to meet your 5.5 batch size. If you were to measure before topping off all of those numbers would be higher.

Flaked wheat really should be mashed. Without mashing you're getting unconverted starches more than anything in your beer.

OP your going to to need to mash that flaked wheat like weezy advised.

Thank for all your answers buddy! So is this a good idea: I heat up 13L of water to 150-160 degrees and then mash my wheat. I take out the wheat and use the water that's left to steep my flaked oat and malt extract and hops. Is that a proper work?

yes except you need a base malt when you mash the flaked wheat since it needs the enzymes from the base malt (flaked wheat doesnt have its own enzymes) so you can mash the oat and the flaked wheat but you will need a base malt to help conversion. I believe you should be able to add a lb or 2 of malted wheat to help conversion or 2row...i dont think a lb of 2 row will affect the recipe that much.

so take your flaked oat and wheat with a pound or so of 2row and mash at about 155 for an hour (this mash will replace your steeping process) and then bring to a boil, add extract and hops and go from there

I've minimashed a pound of grain in a 64oz double walled SS growler quit nicely. Double crushed in a one gallon paint strainer bag. It works great for quick, partial mash recipes. You *might* be able to squeeze a half pound of all three in one. Not sure. Half pound 2 row (or 6 row even better) should convert.

yea i use paint strainer bags for all my batches (biab brewer) i mash 11 lbs in the bag in a 5 gal pot (water is about 1/2" from top, which means i lose very little heat) then i dunk sparge in my 15 gal pot and then combine the 2 to boil 7.5 gallons works fantastic. mashing in a 64 oz SS growler sounds pretty interesting
