Default Grain to extract?

What would 20lbs of American Two-row Pale equate to in lbs of extract? and what kind of extract should I be looking for?

Thanks All

It's roughly 15 pounds of LME or 12 pounds of DME.

In general, 1 pound two-row= .75 pound LME = .6 pound DME.

Use "pale" or light or even extra light extract.

Keep in mind they add other grains when they make extract.

So which would you use when they ask for 20lbs of American Two-row Pale, LME or DME?

I've always substituted Light DME (usually not extra light. I think it's Briess Golden Light and Munton's something-or-other). I think it's largely a matter of personal preference. I've had good results with DME, so I've never bothered trying LME. Others seem to like to use LME or a mix of DME and LME.
