Good day,
I am stuck on 1, 2 and 3 and am not sure about 5. Answers with parsing would be appreciated, please! Thanks in advance!

Cryptic Connections
In a Cryptic Connections puzzle, five cryptic crossword clues must be solved; their answers can be made from the list of letters given underneath. Once all the clues have been solved, some letters will be unused; these can be arranged to give a word or phrase that links the answers to the five clues.

1 Great stuff about gold (5)
2 Drain old German house with water in the middle (7)
3 Buzz Aldrin finally rode around outside (5)
4 Dark thoughts? (6) DREAMS
5 Pull flier before church (6) STARCH

3 Drone (anagram rode + (Aldri)N (finally)
5 Wren ch
5 Wren ch
1 Major, great? It could be Jam, stuff, reversed, and Or, gold.
2 EXHAUST
"Their answers can be made from the list of letters underneath". It might have been better if you had posted the list of letters.
Definately WREN CH.
No idea where starch might fit in
...so I think the connecting word will be Pipe? Does that come from the list now that we've been given the answers?
"maj or" looks good, yes
PIPE ?
Yes, thanks, Bobbinwales and JJ109. At the time of the OP, Matakari had got only one answer - so maybe didn't think to post the letters (or maybe he was hoping to manage that part himself!).
I think you might have spoiled the endgame for Matakari, Neveracrossword.
No 4 Dreams
connecting word is Pipe
Question Author
Thanks, all, the parsing is great and the connecting word fits perfectly!
Thanks, Matakari.

PS It might be more fun - and more rewarding - for us if you share the list of letters.
Question Author
Ok, NACW, I'll certainly share the list of letters next time! Thanks again!
Thanks, Matakari - that would make it more of a puzzle for us, rather than just the normal three or four clues.
