what kind of DME?? light I'm assuming?

if so just make a simple wheat beer

6 lb's of light dme
1 Ounce of either Hallertau or Tettnany
1 package of muntons yeast.

use all of the hops, spread throughout the boil!

more is better, all the time, no matter what.

Okay thanks all so much for your help. One last question hypothetically, if say i boil the 6lbs DME and all of the above in 2 gallons of water for 60 mins, would it be wrong if i added the hot Wort to 3 gallons of cold water. Then aerate then pitch when i reached a good temp?

Of course, you will lose some volume to boiloff, but your basic plan is acceptable in the absence of equipment necessary to conduct a full wort boil.

Dechlorinate your tap water if that's what you decide to use for topup.

I've never used it, but there aren't many fans of Munton's (regular, not Gold) yeast here. A $7 pack of liquid yeast and an hour of your time to prepare a starter could be the difference between a beer you merely tolerate versus a beer you adore, especially if you propose to brew without any specialty malts. The sparer the recipe, the more fermentation character becomes the focus of the beer.

Assuming you have light DME, you'll probably be wanting to target the Blonde Ale style, barring the use of outside ingredients not mentioned.
