Default Would like AG equivelents for amber malt

I have a couple of liquid extract + Steeping grain recipes that I would like to make in AG. Which grain equivalents would I use? So far I have only been able to find the equivalent for pale liquid extracts.

Here is the recipe that I am trying to convert:
1/2 lb 6 row barley
1/2 lb flaked wheat
1/2 lb biscuit
1/2 lb carapils
3/4 lb crystal 40L
2 oz roasted barley

3.6 lb amber liquid extract (5 lbs ???)
3 lb pale liquid extract (I will go with 4 lbs 2 row malt, maybe Maris Otter?)

I would appreciate any help. I am making a wild stab in the dark with using some pale malt with some Munich or Crystal as a sub for the amber liquid. I am new to trying to make AG recipes from extract recipes.

What you have is a fairly good grain bill for an amber. Maybe 1/2 lb. C80L/C120L and 4 lbs of 2-row for the amber LME, not much more.

Briess makes their amber extract with 2-row, Crystal 60L, and Munich with a Lovibond rating of 8.0 - 13.0. That might help in coming up with a substitute.

Since you're doing it AG you could just drop the 6-row...with all that 2-row you're adding.
