DME vs LME - by weight

Postby cubby_swans » Fri Jun 05, 2009 12:26 am

I just want to know if there's a simple way to determine how much DME to use vs LME when brewing. Does 3lbs of a DME = 3lbs of LME, or is it greater? I would tend to think that 3lbs of DME would be > 3lbs of LME, because the water/liquid is not present.
