Does anybody know the answer to this: when volumes are quoted in recipes on American web sites (eg. "pour wort into fermenter and top up to 5 Gals"), are they referring to a U.S liquid measure or U.S dry measure? The reason I ask is because if you convert 5 gallons (U.S Liquid) to metric, it is only approx 19L, which seems a bit light on for final wort volume. However, if you convert 5 Gals (U.S Dry), you get approx 22L, which seems closer to the money. This is confusing to me as I would have thought wort volume would logically be referred to in U.S Liquid units. Am I going crazy? :blink:
