Considering that your problem is consistent, I would say it is the extract. Although you can make good beer form good extract, you can't control the fermentability, so you can't make different styles very well from the same extract. Going to a partial grain recipe might be relatively painless way to fix the problem. The brew-in-a-bag method is easiest to ...

Buy bulk 33lb growlers of LME. Only use 1/2 a packet of Muntons per batch (sprinkle very evenly on the entire top surface of the wort and do not stir and 1/2 pack will be plenty). Use normal house sugar instead of bottling sugar. Use 50% less hops and only do a 15-20 minute boil in about 1 gallon (or less) of water adding hops at an even rate throughout. ...

From Beersmith (roughly): 27 g DME to 1 liter water will give you 1.010

I realize this is five years old, but I came across it while searching for the same question, so I'll throw in my two cents in case it helps. First thing, most LMEs are hopped and most DMEs are unhopped, so you might use both to dial in the bittering. Second thing, it seems it's easier to find lighter DMEs than LMEs, so you might use LME for the bulk of ...

The only way to know is to look at the OG. LME has 36 ppg and DME has about 45. In the recipe you mention, the OG is 1.038 for 5 gal. and it calls for 6 lb. of extract. Assuming LME, 36*6=216. Divide by 5 for 5 gal. and you get 43ish. That's darn close to the OG listed and DME would make the OG even higher, so that particular recipe must be for LME. ...
