If you post the recipe I'm happy to convert. It’s pretty easy, just swap however much pale malt you don't want to use for pale extract (the exact amount will depend on what efficiency the original recipe was written for, and what your partial mash efficiency is.)

How much grain do you want to mash for the partial? None of the specialty malts need to be mashed, so you cna just steep them and add 6.5 lbs of pale/light DME or 7.5 lbs of light/pale LME instead. Then add the hops/spice/yeast etc... as specified.

Found the recipe:

Gingerbread Porter

6lb Extra light DME
12oz Chocolate malt
4oz Black Patent
4oz Crystal 80L
1oz Williamette (60min)
.5oz Hallertau (30min)
.5oz Hallertau (5min)
12 inches Cinnamon stick
2oz Fresh grated ginger root
2tsp Allspice
1tsp Cloves
White Labs Irish Ale Yeast

Steep grains at 150 for 45mins
Rinse with 1gal 170 water
Add extract and bring to a boil
Add hops according to their time
Irish Moss/Whirlfloc can be added at 10min
Crush spices and add at flameout


Let this one age some, 2 weeks in the bottle and the first taste is like getting punched in the mouth by christmas.

For every pound of base malt you add to the mash you can subtract .65 lbs of LME or .55 lbs of DME (assuming 65% efficiency). Good luck, hope it turns out well.
