Default LME to AG conversion

Can someone help me convert:

3.4 lbs Canadian United Pale LME
3.4 lbs Canadian United Dark LME

to AG?

These are diastic malts and seem to be a bit darker than the avg LME. Is anyone familier to Canadian Untited? They supply a lot of ubrews in Canada with Bulk LME.

I can convert an estimate using generic LME, but promash doesn't have the stuff you want in its inventory.

Let me know if you still need it......

A good rule of thumb to get the proper amount of grain is to multiply LME by 1.2, so you're gonna need 8-9 lbs of grain, but that doesn't tell you which grains. Here's a detailed paper on Converting All Grain to Partial Mash. Maybe there's enough info here that you can go backwards.

Or, you could wait five minutes and maybe someone who actually knows something (unlike myself) will show up.

I have a conversion chart that I can email you. Send me an email: homebrewer_99@yahoo.com

Somehow when I paste it in here it always comes out unformatted. Something I'm doing wrong I'm sure.

In terms of dark LME (or DME, I suppose), how do you figure out what grains were used to darken it? Or do they darken it after the extraction process? Just curious.

I just put "Canadian United Pale malt" into Google and ran across this:
http://www.brewingtechniques.com/bmg/united.html

seems like a great summary of malting companies.
