I'm thinking about brewing a wheat beer.

Using the following:
2 - 3.3 lbs cans of Mutons Wheat Malt Extract
2 - 1.0 lb bags of Mutons Dried Malted Wheat Extract
1 - 1.0 Ounce of UK First Gold Hops pellets
Almost 6 gallons of water.....or maybe 5 gallons...not sure

Thoughts?

Unless you know the extract is fresh, I'd use all DME, and I'd throw in .75 lb of Carapils or something to aide head retention.

Other than that it sounds pretty horrible, send me a case when it's done and I'll let you know for sure.

so basically:

6 lbs cans of Mutons Wheat Malt Extract
2.0 lb bags of Mutons Dried Malted Wheat Extract
1.0 Ounce of UK First Gold Hops pellets

You know the AAU's of the hops?
and I second adding .75 of carapils for steeping.

From the Urban Dictionary:

Chronic
1. Word to describe any very good strain of marijuana. This term must NOT be thrown around lightly. (ie.Even if you get the sickest strain's of weed all the time and they are better than what everyone else has, only call the few very best types 'da kronic').
Crystal's, red/purple fibres and healthy green is what yo' lookin for.
2. Extreme or severe. Especially, but not explicably someone who smoke's the above substance everyday."
3. Anything sick, excellent, extreme, severe or funny.
1. Daaaaamn. That **** is da chronic!"
2. "Man, i've had a chronic headache all day."
"Probably 'coz yo' is a chronic."
3. "That was a chronic party last night." (sick)
"I have some chronic news for you." (excellent)
"The most chronic thing happened to me last night." (extreme/severe)
"Hahaha...That's chronic." (funny)
