To convert the other way, divide by the figure shown

 

1 kilogram = 1000grams           1 lb = 16 ounces

 

10 kg   =    22 lb                            10 lb=       4.536 kg

5 kg     =    11 lb                            5 lb   =       2.268 kg

3 kg     =    6 lb 9¾ oz                    3 lb   =       1.361 kg

2 kg     =    4 lb 6½ oz                    2 lb   =       907g

1 kg     =    2 lb 3¼ oz                    1 lb   =       454g

500g    =    1 lb 1½ oz                    ½ lb  =       227g

250g    =    8¾ oz                           ¼ lb  =       113.5g

125g    =    4½ oz                           1 oz   =       28.4g

100g    =    3½ oz                           ½ oz  =       14.2g

50g      =    1¾ oz                           ¼ oz  =       7.1g

25g      =    ¾ oz                             ⅛ oz  =       3.5g    

 

 

25 litres   =       5.5 imperial gallons          =       44 pints

20 litres   =       4.36 imperial gallons        =       35 pints, 4 fl. oz

15 litres   =       3.27 imperial gallons        =       26 pints, 8 fl. oz

10 litres   =       2.18 imperial gallons        =       17 pints, 12 fl. oz

5 litres     =       1.09 imperial gallons        =       8 pints, 16 fl. oz

4 litres     =       0.88 imperial gallons        =       7 pints

3 litres     =       0.67 imperial gallons        =       5 pints, 5 fl. oz

2 litres     =       0.44 imperial gallons        =       3 pints,10 fl. oz

1 litre       =       0.22 imperial gallons        =       1 pint, 15 fl. Oz

 

 

1 Brewers barrel   =   36 imperial gallons (UK)

Firkin - 72 pints      =    9 imperial gallons (UK)

Pin - 36 pints          =    4.5 imperial gallons (UK)

 

If the OG is too heavy or not heavy enough a formula below will help add or reduce the grain required for your own personal taste!

 

Example:

Current OG 1037 (3.8% abv)                          Total grains 4,300g (100%)

Required Gravity: OG 1050 (5.1% abv)

 

Formula:     Previous grain weight x New OG – (always take off the first two digits off the OG!). Then divide by Old OG

 

 

Change the OG:     (Required OG 1050)

          

4,300g (Current Grain) x 50

Diveded by 37 (Current OG)                            

 

=5.811g  (Total Grain Required for 1050 OG 5.1% ABV)

 

Hope this helps Happy Brewing.
