I am about to brew an Irish Red Ale and the ingredients call for 5 lbs. Briess amber malt extract syrup. I did a search on-line and the only amount available is a 3.3 lb. can. I don't want to order two cans if I’m not going to use it all in one batch.
Can LME be stored?
Can I substitute LME for DME? If so, what is the conversion for amounts used?
Or can I use the 3.3 lb. can of LME with a DME? Again how do I convert the LME weight to a DME weight? I don't believe the weights are the same due to the amount of sugars in a LME.
Any help here would be appreciated.
