Default Austin Home Brew Arrogant Bastard clone

I brewed their PM version a little while ago, and now want to do an all grain version. I have the hops and yeast, just trying to get the grain bill. The pm recipe calls for:
1 1/2 lbs crystal 120L
2 1/2 lbs 2-row
8 1/2 lbs AMBER extract

with an OG of 1.074

How do I convert the amber LME to grain? Can I just use all 2-row, or do I need to add something for color?

Thanks

I guess that's part of the question. My mash efficiency is around 70%, but I don't know what the efficiency was when the LME was created.

The crystal will give you the color. At 70% efficiency Beer Tools says you'll need 13.5# of two row to hit 1.074. This AG recipe is a bit different, but you might want to look at it for some ideas.

Thanks, I saw that that recipe and may try it. So you're saying that just the 1 1/2 lbs of crystal and the rest 2-row, I will hit the same color/body as the amber extract?

Maybe someone here has made their all grain version and would offer up the grain bill?

I'd help, but my recipe is much better

McKBrew's right, 13.5 lbs should work pretty well with the rest of those grains in the OP to get that color and flavor.

My recipe is strictly 12 pounds MO and 1.5 pounds of crystal 120L. That's it. I'm drinking it now, as a matter of fact.

Well, not exactly right now. I mean, it's 7:45 AM. But, it's on tap and I will be into it by noon.

Chinook.

All chinook- about 3 ounces, maybe four. I'll check and let you know.

Edit- the last time, my chinook was 14.9, and I used 1.25 ounces as FWH, 1 ounce at 30 minutes, and an ounce at flame out. My OG was 1.066, and the IBUs were 86.2, according to Beersmith.

i'd go ahead and give it a complimentary pull to make sure carbonation levels are up to par.
