Thanks,
Mike

weizenbock:  use everything but the acid malt, use the Sterling for bittering (2 ozs would be better)and the Hersbrucker for a 20 min addition  Getr some rice hulls and some bock yeast, either wyeast or White Labs.

With some American or English yeast you'd have the makings of a decent "wheat wine". Using all the wheat, Munich, Pale, and C90 would probably put you around 1.080-1.090 with typical efficiency.

Personally, I'd probably try to brew twice. The Pale and Munich with the hops you have and some lager yeast would make a nice Helles. Then you could do a MIAB beer with the wheat and C90, plus whatever hops and yeast you can scare up for a simple summer wheat ale. Acid malt for pH adjustment as needed.
