I really want to make an extract SN Torpedo Clone. During my hunt for recipes, this one in my opinion sounds great and I would really like to try it.
Recipe OP here

I know to convert all-grain recipes to extract, you multiply the grain amount by .75 for LME and .6 for DME. Doing that for this recipe only gives about 3.9 kg for LME (in place of the 2-row).
Reading another post closer to the start of that thread, the creator of the recipe says:
I'm gonna guess you could sub light DME for the pale 2-row and steep the carapils and Crystal 40. Try running it through Promash and tweak the DME until you hit 1.074. I'm kind of a noob, so I'd wait for another opinion.
Another thing, I might need to tweak the hops, so let me get a judges opinion of it before you make it. I'll post that info soon as I can.
Does anybody know if simply throwing the recipe into a calculator (I've been using brewers friend recently) and tweaking the DME until it hits 1.076 is a good idea?
How does this sound for a 22ltr batch: (All estimates are brewersfriend calulations)
