Default LME to DME

Just a quick question as I am running out the door. How much DME does one need to sub for LME? I just want to use DME in an upcoming recipe and the recipe calls for LME. Thanks!

As a general rule, 4 pounds of DME is roughly equivalent to 5 pounds of LME. This can vary from brand to brand, but you'll usually be right in the ballpark using the 4-to-5 ratio.

1 lbs grain = .75 lbs LME = .6 lbs DME or something like that?
