I too prefer measurements like millilitres and grams but how do you convert a cup to weight for DME?
Reason I ask is I was looking at the FAQs on WhiteLabs site and they recommend 1 cup DME to 2 pints of water for starters.

Don't need to. Just use a 10:1 ratio. 1000ml water:100g DME, 2000ml:200g etc...

Default Volumes vs Weight of DME

Thanks. Yes I had seen that ratio posted by many experts which made me wonder why WhiteLabs would talk volumes for DME rather than weight. Guess they figure some brewers may not have digital scales just volume measures.
