I NEED to bottle today and my scale is busted, which means I cannot measure out the 4.5 oz of corn sugar I need. I cannot get to a store to buy another one and I am pretty much out of ideas. Im not flat out guessing...

Can somebody measure out 4.5 oz. of corn sugar and tell me how many shot glasses it fills up? (its about the only thing I can think of that are all about the same no matter the container)

Please Please Please!

you need 3/4 cup for a 5 gallon batch.

Thanks for the help - now that I think about it a simple unit conversion would have worked, but o well.

Thanks again!
