Default Conversion

Is there a conversion for LME to DME and vice versa?

takes about 10% more lme than dme. 3.3 lbs lme = 3 lbs dme

Per a post from Yooper, who is a BeerGoddess.

"A handy way to think of grain/DME/LME is this: 1 lb grain = .75 lb LME = .6 lb DME"

The inverse conversion math is left as an exercise for the student.
