Recipe these ingredients

    2 row malt
    Light wheat malt
    C-60 malt

    Fuggles
    Nugget
    EKG

    The hops are pretty old, I'm assuming they're ok but weaker. So let's shoot for something fairly hoppy and if they are weak, it'll still be beer.

    Recipe me something.

    I would go as follows:

    8# 2-row
    4# Light Wheat
    .5# c60

    Mash around 153-155

    Use nugget to bitter, Ekg for 15m, all the fuggle at flameout.

    This would make beer and is pretty much how my recipes go.

    Oh, I don't know your efficiency, but I always err on the low side because I've never been pissed that I accidentally made the beer too strong.

    I'm not sure what my efficiency is either... But that would be a pretty good sized beer for 5 gallons. I like that mix, maybe trim it by 10%.

    Throw some rice hulls in too. Wheat makes me anxious without it.

    Since I don't have any of those..... Maybe I'll to the volumes you said and grind a little more course sacrificing efficiency for no stuck sparge.

    You'd probably be alright without them at this ratio anyway, but a coarser grind would be good insurance. Agreed.

    More than 5 gallons worth?

    A couple oz of each hop. 5 lbs of wheat and Mayne a half pound of C-60.

    Oh, and I don't have any 2-row. I just added that because I'll need it anyway. I could use MO instead of 2-row since it has to be purchased.

    Soak the grain for a few hours before milling and you'll get more intact hulls. That will help a lot too

    I usually condition it. Spray some water, mix, let sit in a sealed container for a couple hours.

    Good deal. Try tasting some of the hops before deciding on whether to use them or not. They should taste. Well. Hoppy. Not soapy or grassy or otherwise gross or meh.

    Good call. I also have some leaf centennial. But I'm sure those are toast. They're older and well, leaf keeps worse than pellet.

    Taste test them too. If they taste good you can toss them in around 15 minutes or so before flameout.

    Use whatever you have left of the good tasting hops either at flameout or for a dry hop. Use up the old inventory.

    Also add a bunch at the beginning, AAs drop with age, so you'll have to use extra. Just make sure your plan uses them all.

    With conditioning the way I do it still produces plenty of dust. It isn't exactly wet.

    You Have MO?
    If so.... roast a pound at 320 degrees for a half hour or so.
    Let it sit for a week.
    Add to....
    10 pounds MO
    3 pounds wheat
    0.75 pounds C60.
    Mash at 154.
    Add 2 ounces of the nugget for 60 minutes
    2 ounces of the fuggles at 5 minutes.
    (This is assuming the hops are a little old, and the AA is not what it used to be.)

    Should have no issues with the sparge.
    Do a ten minute first wort boil, during the first sparge rest.
    S-04 would be better, but S-05 will be just fine

    In beer there is freedom.
