Awesome name!  :rock:   

Using metric system for hops and lbs/oz for grains? You must be trying to confuse us, haha

I can't wait to try this..

I know I know. I found doing small batches I needed g for hops. But my scale seems to be inaccurate when measuring in kg for grain for some reason. Should get a new scale really.

At least you didn't do what I did with my Christmas beer and use US gal instead of UK gal.  Or the other way around.  I never get that right.

Haha... I'm all over the place too... liquid in gallons, hops in oz, grain in metric. I think I started putting grain into metric when ordering from Noble Grape as that's how they price it on their website.

This is like the Canadian "metric" system.  Does anyone else find this is how you measure things?   indoor temp: F, outdoor temp: C, water temp: F, driving distance: km, anything less than driving distance: feet and inches, weight: lbs.  Who knows how many kg's they are, or how many meters tall they are?  My American friends love this, and never really can believe it.  We like to sample the buffet of units.

Very true, except we usually measure distance in hours/minutes, haha  :cheers:

I'm trying to switch all my brewing measurements to metric but having a hard time especially with weights so I'm using a hybrid clusterfk too, haha
volumes are in metric
weights are in lbs/oz
temperatures are either
