Im brewing a trippel as we speak.

The recipe calls for 1.7 lbs of sugar.

I do not have a scale for this. ( mental note, buy one )

Can someone tell me how many cups of sugar makes up 1.7lbs?

My fiance said oh, its right here on the measuring cup." 8 oz's "

I laughed and said no its 1.7lbs of weight not volume.

Can anyone help? My brew is on standby.. lol :mug:

Thanky

I just saw online that a cup is 7 ounces by weight of granulated sugar, so 1.7 lbs is approximately 3.89 cups of sugar...I would double check that, though
