I've started converting to metric because its confusing a bit.

Kegs are imperial, most of the grains/water are US....makes for easy mixup.

Ya the can kits I made I used 5 imp. Gallons and I did my first all grain the other day and figured the recipes use US gallons.  I'll have to adjust it next time cause I still bottle(bulk prime) I'll have to guess on the sugar or put it in each bottle. Yay.

Ohhhh you should be using a bottleing bucket not putting sugar in each individual bottle much much easier and less tedious

The kegs we all have (i.e. the common cornelius ones -- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cornelius_keg) are 5 US gallons, not imperial gallons.

The common carboys are 23L: basically 6 US Gallons, or 5 Imperial Gallons.

When I started brewing I didn't even realise there were two different kinds of gallons :P
