Recipe Conversion - keeps going to wrong extract

I'm trying to convert a recipe from all grain to partial mash.  When the convert recipe window opens I select my equipment and base malt/extract for the new recipe type.  After hitting "OK" the recipe it spits out seems to default to Wheat Liquid Extract for the extract type regardless of what I select (trying to do Extra Light DME).

The equipment conversion appears correct, just the extract seems to be wrong.

Hi
  I believe if you brew a wheat beer it tries to use wheat malt by default.  I apologize, but I think this is hard coded.

Is it just looking for wheat in the ingredients list or is it looking at the style selected in Style Comparison?  I originally had American Wheat or Rye selected as the style.  I tried changing to, and saving as, American IPA after your post and trying it again, same result.

Just for reference, I'm trying to convert Lagunitas' Lil Sumpin Sumpin to a 5 gallon full boil, partial mash recipe.

Thanks for the reply,
Aaron
