I'm from the UK and only really work in metric. Im having a bit of trouble converting this recipe into metric. In brewing does a "gallon" mean the imperial or american gallon? (23L or 18L)

  • Just to be clear, I think the linked to recipe was made for a 2.5 gallon batch. I haven't worked off of recipes from hopville, but it says 2.5 gallon batch size under the extract/grist section.

  • HopVille will automatically convert recipes between US and metric units. Check the two tabs at the bottom of the recipe page, in the center. Nov 1 '11 at 23:02

It refers to American gallons. 5 gal.=18.92L
