This will be my 10th batch, i've done 9 batches extract and steeping grain and they have been getting better and better. i want to start mashing and taking steps at a time.

i would like to make BM's Outer Limits IPA, but its an AG recipe. i was thinking of making the partial mash and using deathbrewers method of partial mashing.

You're replacing 9# Maris Otter which produces 38 pppg at 100%, so at 75% efficiency it produces 9 * 38 * .75 = 256 gravity units.
The substitute is DME which produces 46 pppg with 100% efficiency, so 256 / 46 = 5.5

I would have thought that qbrew could have done that calculation, but perhaps the efficiency % was set to less than 75% If the efficiency was set to 53%, it should calculate 4# DME.
