Usually us Yanks say to use 1.25 cups DME per 5gal batch...
(We will deal in volume instead of mass because it is easy to measure) Now, DME is about 10% more potent than LME per unit of volume, so take 1.25*1.10 to get 1.375 cups of LME. Converting to SI would be about 325 cl. So boil 325 cl of LME for a 5gal batch.
But, you're doing 22L which is about 5.8 gallons...
So, 325cl * (5.8/5) = 377cl
Use 377cl of LME boiled with about 500cl of water for 5 min, cool while keeping sanitary, and mix into your 22L batch. Bottle, wait 3 weeks, and enjoy!
