Thread back from the dead!
I doubt very much that malt extract is going to change the flavor of
the beer unless it's dark malt extract and you used pilsner malt or extract
as the base.
DME which is mostly maltose is not fermentable by zymomanas and corn sugar
is, so its extra insurance against infection.

Good because I just used it in am emergency last weekend. But I used LME so lets hope they're not under carbonated. Because I used the recommended DME amount per Palmer's book. So we shall see.

I just found a chart for Converting – DME – LME - GRAIN
"A lot of times, you need a reference chart in order to help convert from DME, LME, Grain and back. This makes super fast work of converting LME and DME as well as grains. Honestly this is one of the better cheat sheets that I’ve seen. Really does make fast work when your in a pinch."
The Chart!
