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.

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. :)
