Actually, you basically already know based on what you've written. You only need to swap the LME out and you're saying it's giving you 36ppg.

We don't know your efficiency, so let's assume it's 70% and you're brewing a 5g batch (makes sense based on weight).

36ppm * 5g = 180 points total
36ppm * .70 efficiency * x (pounds of base malt) = 180 points total
x = 7.14 pounds base malt

Add that to the 2 pounds already called for and you need 9.14 pounds of '2 Row Base' which I'm guessing is just American 2-row. The rest of your grain bill can stay the same. Some might argue you should kick up your Munich, but I tend to disagree.

My eff is running between 65 and 70% Batch sparge. Thats great. I may switch out the C60 to a C40. A little less roasty... Lighter color... Correct on the 5g batch!
