Default Convert ag recipe to extract

need some help with this

Grain Bill
8 lbs. 2-Row
2 lbs. Vienna
0.5 lb. Crystal 10L

I was going to brew an AG but I dont have the funds for a mash tun but I need to get something going in my primary. What kind of extracts should I use to get the same turnout?

Easiest thing to do is swap out the 8 pound two row for between 5 and 6 pounds of extra light DME or LME. Keep everything else the same.

AFAIK, Vienna needs to be mashed, and I don't know if any Vienna extracts. Your best bet would be to mash the Vienna with the Crystal (partial mash), then add pale extract to make up for the 2-row.

Oh, and if we're talking partial boil with this, don't forget to either add your extract late or up your hops additions slightly.

Of course, if you have access to different types of extract syrup, like the vienna extract sold at Northern Brewer, the conversion is just about 1 lb grain to .8 lb LME.
