Thanks in advance!

I used a formula like this: first figure out how much you can mini-mash then convert the rest of the grain to extract.

Thanks RC! What LME would be used in place of the Maris? Crystal is a specialty grain, and could be used in my grain bag during the mash, along with the Vienna, correct?
My LHBS stocks Amber, Dark, Extra Pale, Munich and Wheat LME....Would any of these be a decent replacement for the Maris?

i might up the crystal to a full pound. To me 2 hearted has a very noticeable sweet caramel/crystal flavor to it. I used a full pound in mine and i thought it was extremely close to 2 hearted.
