How much grain should I use if I only have 7lbs of LME?

I brew this recipe 2 weeks ago. Just racked this morning and added the dry hop in the secondary. My gravity reading was at 1.016. Which seems to be on track. The beer smell very good and tasted good with no bad after taste. (I had a couple of Dogfish 60 minutes last night), it seems to me that the taste of my sample was pretty close to the real one, and the dry hopping will had the necessary aroma to make it a perfect match. It was a little hazy for me. But, I guess that with another week of dry hopping and three weeks in bottle, everything will clear out.

I'm not sure anybody can answer that question, except for you. You are the one that would know your efficiency and which base grain you're using.

But in general, one pound two-row = about .75 pounds LME.

Caramel/Crystal Malt 40L is what is on the first post, so I would be getting that.

No, you can NOT sub crystal 40L for base malt. That won't work, and will ruin the beer. You need base malt, or LME, or DME. NOT more crystal!

OK well I am lost then, I don't know what to get. I am a scrub. I just saw the extract recipe and can only get a 7lbs bag of LME, so I just needed to know what to replace the other 2.5 LME with. Sorry for my ignorance.

You can buy more LME, or use a 3 pound bag of dry extract (DME). Or two one-pound bags would be enough, too, since DME is a bit "stronger" than LME.

Thank you, I have had bad luck with the kits I have been getting. I have made 2 IPA that taste horrid. Been waiting 2 months for some HB.

Thanks again.

My LHBS only has 6lb and 3lb bags of LME. What do I sub to make up for the 0.5lb of LME? I'm thinking 2 cups of DME should do the trick.

EDIT: Just weighed the bags, they came in at 9.4 lbs. Am I going to be okay 0.1lb short?
