I brewed a barleywine recently and racked it directly onto a yeast cake from a pale ale. Twelve days later I checked the gravity and it is down to 1.018 from 1.098! The sample wasn't bad, but it is...

There are dilution calculators online which might help figure out how much dme to add. It's basically the formula:

Gravity1 * volume1 = gravity2 * volume2
