That is what I meant... what starches... wheat can convert itself, all of them can convert themselves and then some. Wheat is not an adjunct....

Malted wheat has nearly as much enzyme as 2-row. Flaked wheat does not have enzymes.
As was mentioned, if you use large amounts of wheat you may have problems sparging. Wheat does not have the husks like barley. If you use more than 50% wheat you may consider adding some rice hulls.

Rice hulls, eh? About how much should I use with this amount of wheat?(also, the malted wheat thing got me thinking, is rye malted too?, little off topic but what the heck! )

Rye can be malted or not malted, just like wheat, it depends on what kind you buy. Flaked rye is not malted, rye malt, well...

You're going to add lemon juice to the secondary? I think that's a bad idea.

What exactly are you trying to accomplish with the honey? Why not use some honeymalt?
