I have a pumpkin porter I used to brew as a partial mash and enjoyed to the point I'd like to brew it all grain. Here is the recipe:

3.3 lbs light lme
3 lbs Amber dme
1lb dark dme

In case you wondered the specialty grains are:
1 lb black patent
1.5 lb 6 row

Starting gravity is 1.078 - I didn't remember it being so high, wow

Thanks!

assuming 75% efficiency, 1lb DME = 1.25lb LME = 1.67lb grain

light extract converts to 2-row. amber varies between manufacturers, but i think its like 85% 2-row, 7.5% C60 & 7.5% munich. not a clue about dark extract.

I'd try something like
11.5lbs 2-row
1lb munich
1lb C60
1lb black patent
