Convert this to all grain?

The “white house beer”. What’s the all grain version?


2 (3.3 lb) cans light unhopped malt extract
3/4 lb Munich Malt (cracked)
1 lb crystal 20 malt (cracked)
6 oz black malt (cracked)
3 oz chocolate malt (cracked)
1 lb White House Honey
10 HBUs bittering hops
1/2 oz Hallertaur Aroma hops
1 pkg Nottingham dry yeast
3/4 cup corn sugar for bottling

And the other one:

2 (3.3 lb) cans light malt extract
1 lb light dried malt extract
12 oz crushed amber crystal malt
8 oz Biscuit Malt
1 lb White House Honey
1 1/2 oz Kent Goldings Hop Pellets
1 1/2 oz Fuggles Hop pellets
2 tsp gypsum
1 pkg Windsor dry ale yeast
3/4 cup corn sugar for priming

Assuming 70% extract efficiency, replace the 2 cans of extract in the honey porter with 9 lbs pale malt. Mash at 152 or so.

For the honey ale, replace the can of extract and the lb of DME with 6.25 lbs pale malt. Again, mash around 152.

For the Honey Ale, it would be more like 11 pounds of pale.

Well assuming 38pts/lb of extract and 36pt/lb for grain, and 42 for DME…
The Honey porter would require only 7lb grain. The Honey Ale would require 8.13lbs. That said, your efficiency may be better and get more out per pound of grain. Not sure where you get 11# from…?

Pale malt has an extract of 37 points at 100% efficiency. So at 70% it would put you right around 11 lbs, unless I’m missing something.
