I want to take some recipes I have and sub out some of the extract for base malt in a partial mash. Is there a formula to determine how much grain I would need to use per pound of extract like if my recipe had 7 pounds of extract and I only wanted to use 3 pounds how much grain would I need to make up the difference.

Multiply the amount of LME by 1.2, or the amount of DME by 1.5...those will get you close.

You will be perilously close to the dark side, grasshoppah!

Why does everyone here say that? Shouldn't all-grain be referred to as the lighter side?

The only reason I'm not on the dark side already is becuase my damn estimated quarterly taxes were due this month then my yearly and first quarter in april so i can't justify spending the money on the mashing equipment. I did buy a 10 gallon stainless steal nfs rated brew pot 75 bucks is that a good price?

hmm for most of my brews I'm gonna need 4.5 pounds of grain. Glad I bought that giant strainer.

I agree. I think that it would be a better saying (the green light sabre)... Every week that I brew the closer I get to the "light side"

Because when you do an all grain batch, it's dark by the time you're done!

Try the Recipator (http://hbd.org/recipator/) to calculate your grains and extract. If you use a strainer or mesh over the pot to sparge the grains, you should assume about 40% mash efficiency (that's what I usually had). But the good thing is, you can measure the actual gravity of the sparge run-off, adjust to the actual efficency and adjust your DME/LME accordingly.
