Volume is important to measure accurately. A wort that measures 1.045 at 5.5 gallons will be 1.050 at 5.0 gallons. I use the same bucket to measure my strike+mashout+sparge water and my collected runnings, so at least the measurements are consistent.
Primary/Secondary: #109 Rye, #110 APA
Kegged: #106 American Wheat, #107 IPA, #108 Nut Brown
