I have a can of pre-hopped LME from an English light ale kit.

Can I use this in a lager recipe? I presume the syrup is mostly light
malt extract, but don't know what hops are used.

Chances are the hops are fuggles or goldings. It's not really that important
as they are bittering hops only. Lagers are generally more hoppier than ales
so you may need to hop it up a bit to make a lager.

Thanks Steve.
I'll use some Hallertauer hops + lager yeast. Maybe some caramalt and
see what turns out!

Bittering hops only? Tell that to India Pale Ale brewers.
