Multiply grain poundage by .6 for DME equivilent.

Example: 3 lbs grain X .6 = 1.8 lbs DME

It's really that easy? Wow, so I can convert it to 100% dme, what if I wanted to do a partial mash? Use the 1.8 lbs pils dme and use the wheat as a speciality grain?

I would probably just go with a can of Liquid Wheat Extract. I could be wrong of course, I've never converted anything to extract. I brew all grain, and I know that LME is about 36 gravity points per pound/per gallon. Dry extract is a little more I believe.

5 lbs X .6 = 3 lbs DME

I would use wheat DME since your division of malt is not quite half, just like many wheat extracts.

You could use 1 can of LME if you wanted since they're 3.3 lbs.
