Ummm.... I think he thought you were dropping all BUT 1lb. of 2-row.

Since you're only dropping ONE lb. of 2-row, 1 lb. of extract is too much of an adjustment.
right you are. I misread his post. general rule is 1 lb of base grain = .6 lb of dry malt extract.

Yes.  I would adjust it to get to the same OG.

I use the .6 rule of thumb for DME mentioned by morticai.  Actually, I think I use .66 but close enough.

.75 for LME
