I am looking at making 23 L, and I have one can of the Cooper's Stout Extract, and about 1 lb (500 g) of Chocolate Malt Grain (for doing a PG brew).

Like the title says, how much Malt Extract should I be looking for to get me to about 5 - 6 percent alcohol, but with some residual sweetness, as I plan on using the included yeast packet?

If the can is 3.3# and you are steeping the chocolate malt I'd add about 2-2.75# DME. Maybe add 1/2 # chocolate malt, I'm not too sure about this part.
