Well, I've decided to go with this one but have a few questions. It says to use Nottingham yeast but I don't have that available, what should I use instead: click here for what I have available.

Also, I am wondering about the "Pale Malt (2 Row)" as to what I should use (I'm taking that is the extract?) . Here is what I have available to me.

And lastly, how much and what type of sugar should I use for bottling?

You have selected an all grain recipe. There is no extract in it. IMHO, you have bit off more than you can chew for a first recipe. Find an extract hefeweizen recipe that uses no more than two kinds of extract and one hops addition.

As a general rule of thumb, prime with 1 oz of dextrose per gallon.

Read How to Brew - By John Palmer (twice). It will help immensely.

Replace the 2 row with 4.5lbs DME or 6lbs LME and steep the other grains at 155F for 45 minutes. For yeast use any high atten. British or American strain.

And this will make it a partial mash recipe then since I'm using the malt extract? Sorry for the questions....first time and all.

Yes. Just follow Tele's directions, and you should be good to go. Good idea to read Palmer's book ASAP too.

Actually if you follow that thread there is an extract version.

Instead of dextrose, what's the rule of thumb for using corn sugar?
