If a recipe calls for a total of 16 lbs of
grain to be mashed and I want to substitute
various liquid malt extract instead of
mashing, where can I find an explanation of
how to calculate the amount of LME to be
substituted.

I need to know the resource so I won't have
to ask this question again!

http://www.beersmith.com/blog/2008/06/03/converting-all-grain-recipes-to-malt-extract/ Beersmith is a good place to start. For base pale malt you multiply by 0.75
to convert to LME or by 0.60 to get Dry Malt Extract.
So 16 lbs pale malt grain becomes 12 lbs of LME or 9.6 lbs of DME.
It gets complicated when the original all grain recipe has extras -
speciality malts or beer adjuncts.
