You didn't mess up the calculations, the only thing you did was make the mistake of putting "feet" instead of "inches" in the OP, your maths worked out correct.

I didn't actually do the math so I don't know what mistake (if any, aside from writing the wrong units) occurred. I just thought it was kind of funny. Didn't mean to make a big deal of it either; I just knew his volume SHOULDN'T be larger than my master bedroom.

OP, sounds like you've gotten yourself on the right track with online calculators. Any other issues, feel free to ask. I'll try not to make fun of simple errors.

I only brew 5 gallons at a time. Sounds like OP DOES have it right. We should all be so lucky.

hahaha I do brew 5 gals at a time. Ended up with ~4 gals after secondary fermentation. Probably will look into a 6 gal carboy in the future so I can have more delicious beer.
