So I have a buddy that wants’ to use dark malt extract and I only carry
Golden light, amber and Wheat DME, right now. He has a recipe that calls for dark DME. He "is" using steeping grains. What should I add to the grain bill to add to the "Dark" that he will be missing from the Golden light DME that I carry?
HELP!!!
Cheers
Jay

The recipe already has roast, black patent, and caramel malt in there. The only thing I can think of is that the total of 0.5 lb of roasted malt isn't enough. I'd add some chocolate malt, maybe 0.5 lb.
