Presumably I need to work out how much water to use based on the grain bill?
Any advice would be appreciated.
You can use american, California, chico ale yeast (like white labs wlp-001) or any "clean" yeast to be safe. I have used white labs English ale yeast on some IPAs in the past as well.
I am not an expert on ingredients but I would use whatever wheat grain you can get.
I am not sure I understand your water question. If your doing full boils, then do whatever you need to do in order to end up with a full carboy while accounting for boil off. I boil 13 gallons to end up with about 11.5 between 2 carboys.
