Tip: To convert a recipe from LME (liquid malt extract) to DME (dry malt extract)
Use the following calculation: (Pounds LME x 34) / 42
Tip: Light Dry Malt Extract is Hygroscopic, meaning it will absorb moisture and tends to clump. To dissolve when brewing with malt extract, warm your brewing water, stir in the extract until thoroughly dissolved, then bring to a boil. This works better than trying to stir the malt beer into a steaming, boiling kettle.
