Recipe Formulation Help Needed

Postby Kepler57 » Tue Feb 21, 2006 9:04 pm

I am looking to brew my first lager and i have selected the Anchor Steam Beer recipe from the Clone Brews Book. In terms of malt, the recipe calls for the following:

14 oz. US Crystal
4 lb. Alexander's Pale Malt Syrup
2.75 lb. M&F light DME

However, i only have the Crystal Malt and DME available. So my question is how much TOTAL DME do i use since i will not be using any Liquid Malt ? I just basically need to adjust my grain bill to all DME and Crystal. Any help would be appriciated.

Also any additional hints from people who have brewed the California Common Beer style beer before would be greatly appriciated. Thanks so much

LME to DME * 0.89
DME to LME * 1.10

is the simple formulas that I use to convert between the two.
If you look in the front of your clone brews book they will start with the gravity of the wort and work backwards.
