I noticed the instructions say it will do 6.6 gallons up to 1.050. Above that you are supposed to double pitch. I wonder if one package is enough for 5.5 gallons up to 1.060.

After doing something very similar, I would be careful to not overhop this one. My grain bill was 5# Vienna and 5# White Wheat with Columbus hopped throughout. I only use 1/4 oz of Columbus for bittering as well with a total of 3 oz for the whole batch including 1 oz for dry hopping.
After 3 weeks, it is barely drinkable but I am hoping it will mellow with time. I was going for something between an american wheat beer and an APA but it turned out like an extremely bitter IPA from a hops standpoint. It is called "hoppy b****" at this point.
I would recommend adding 5-10% carapils or something to help balance the beer out. This is all based on my recent experience so take it for what it is. I found it more difficult than I thought it would be to create what I was going for due to such a light bodied delicate base.
You don't have any pilsner malt in there, so DMS shouldn't be a concern.
