Default LME to DME conversion

What is the conversion to DME from LME in a recipe. Have a hefe recipe that calls for 7lbs. of LME and I prefer to use DME.

Also, any suggestions on a good hefe recipes. Got a couple but looking for a few more to check out. Check this site's recipe list already.

7 lbs LME is about 5.6 lbs DME

Sorry, I was in Detroit...back home now.
