I opt for the more accurate measure. I measure my grain bill and hops in kg/g because it is much easier to measure an accurate 15g instead of 0.529oz. I mash at 155F because the standard 68C is a few degrees of control off of Fahrenheit.

Besides, if you listen to Can You Brew It, most brewers give recipes in percentages. It is easy to convert percentages to kg and not deal with 1lb=16oz and 1g=4qt=8pt=128oz.

In any case, I buy my grain by the pound, hops by the ounce, and drink my beers by the pint - regardless of whether it is an American or Imperial pint.

Guess sarcasm is obsolete too. Maybe it's just a "redneck" thing.

that's interesting, because i measure in lb/oz cause it's easier to measure an accurate 4oz instead of 113.398 grams......

wait that's not interesting at all.

do people really not see how invalid this argument is?

Yeah, that's almost like the "metric is more accurate" thing.

If you're not fluent in sarcastic, you shouldn't be on the webs.
