1 pound = 2 cups

"A pint's a pound, the world 'round."

A cup is 8 ounces.

Water? Grains? Extract? Honey?

Oops, you already said sugar in the title. So I don't have the answer handy.

For water....not dry ingredients.

To answer the op. It depends on a bunch of things, including what kind of sugar you are using.

You can't really convert weight to volume (cups), but you can get close. A pound of table sugar is approximately 2.25- 2.5 cups of sugar. It depends on the consistency of the sugar, though. A finer grain would be less (it packs down in the cup)

Thanks all. It is Corn sugar. For Applefein(sp?)
Sent my swmbo to store and they gave her a 5 lb bag of sugar instead of 4 1lb bags. It was cheaper at least.

They cut hours at work and gearing up to maybe being laid off. So getting a scale os out of the question right now.

Thanks again for all your help.

Thanks for all the replies. Looking around the house and I found an old diet scale. So according to the 1 cup bags of corn sugar I had lying around. 4 cups looks to be about a pound.

No worries on that though now I just way out a pound.
