I want to use LME to prime. If a recipe asks for 3/4 cups of corn sugar what is the correct conversion to LME?

Here is a nifty calculator to find the right amount to prime with:


Problem is......never heard of anyone use LME. Only honey or DME. I guess you could calculate the DME from the calculator and add 20%. I would stick to the corn sugar.....I think the LME may add sediment as well.
