Default Extract breakdown?

Anyone know the break down of what is in typical bulk extracts?

What would be the AG equivalent to:
Pale Ale LME
Amber LME
Dark LME

I used to buy Pale LME in bulk then add my steeping grains but now I have to go farther to get specialty grains. The closest place to me is a ubrew, but they only have the Bulk LME above and sometimes some crystal 60 grains.

I've been mixing amber and dark with pale for some recipes. It would be nice to be able to figure out how to replicate those recipes using AG or Pale and Specialty malts.

6 lb Pale Ale LME = 7.5 2-row pale
" Amber LME = " plus 1/2 lb caramel (20L-80L)
" Dark LME = " plus 1/2 lb dark caramel (120L) plus 1/2 chocolate

Ballpark numbers. The Dark LME I got at the Oak Barrel was good for a Brown with 1/2 lb Victory or a porter with a 1/2 lb of 160L.

Is there ever any roasted barley in dark DME?

I doubt it, but don't know for certain.

Somewhere I've posted a chart that you would like that compares the weights of each (grain, LME and DME).

Granted, the format did not make it through the translation, but it's not difficult to cut and paste back into a Word.Doc. The lb.oz format is easy to seperate.

Do a search on my log-in (homebrewer_99) and you should get the chart.
