Can you steep grains? If not you are going to have a hard time getting close to this beer. If you can steep grains, you will want to convert the base malts
6.5 lbs 2 Row= 5.28 lbs LME or 4.47 lbs DME- Use golden or light color
5 lbs Munich= 4.1 lbs LME or 3.45 lbs DME- Use Amber/Munich colored extracts
Steep all the specialty grains at about 155f for 30 minutes.
p.s. the partial mash version is on this thread if you decide to move that way
Hope that helps,
for your reference:
ALL-GRAIN TO EXTRACT
Amount of pale malt x .8125 = amount of liquid malt extract
(example: 8 lbs. pale malt x .8125 = 6.5 lbs. liquid malt extract)
Amount of pale malt x .6875 - amount of dry malt extract (DME)
(example: 8 lbs. pale malt x .6875 = 5.5 lbs. dry malt extract)
Amount of wheat malt x .937 = amount of liquid wheat malt extract
(example: 6.5 lbs. wheat malt x .937 = 6.1 lbs. liquid malt extract)
