I want to make a batch of Cincinnati Pale Ale with the recipe describes in the How to brew of John Palmer book. To do it, I need Pale Ale DME. The problem is my homebrew shop only indicates the EBC value of the malt extract and not directly the type of beer.
According to this website, an American Pale Ale have an EBC between 10 and 25. Does it mean I should take a DME with an EBC between those values?
I found, on the website of another shop, a pale ale malt extract with 6°L (14.5 EBC). If my shop doesn't sell 14.5 EBC dry malt extract, should I mix two different DME to get this EBC?
In general, how can we choose the correct DME according to the type of beer we want to make?
