Default Priming with liquid malt extract?

I'm making the Affligem Noel clone from "Beer Captured," and the recipe calls for priming with dry malt extract. I've never primed with malt extract, and I use liquid rather than dry extract anyway. Is it within reason to prime with liquid ME, and if so how much? My general conversion is 3/4 lb DME to 1 lb LME. The recipe calls for 1.25 cups DME, which comes to 1 2/3 cups LME. Any chance this gives me bottle bombs? Thx.

I don't see why you cannot use LME. LME is 80% as strong as DME by weight. Does the recipe state weights of the ingredients because that would be easier to convert. A cup of liquid may not have the same weight as a cup of dry ingredients.

It will take longer to carbonate with malt extract.
