I've just about got all my AG setup together, but not quite yet. I want to make a brew to take with me on vacation in 6 weeks. I'd like to make something along the lines of Sam Adam's Summer Ale. It's an American Wheat Beer with a subtle lemon flavoring. It reminds me of iced tea. I'm going to need to make this with extract. Anyone have any ideas?

How close to Sam Adams Summer Ale was this. I've converted this to Extract. I substitued 5lbs of Light DME for the barley. Steeping 1lb of wheat and 1/2lb of Crystal malt for the rest. I've got bittered orange peel, lemon peel, and seeds of paradise. Do you have any suggestions for quantities?
