Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

56oz to 500 gallons of jelly

I am going commercial with a jelly recipe. I am trying to convert a 7 jar recipe to 500 gallons. Am I to use different types of scales to measure sugar verses the liquids?
Have a Great Day!

I assume your question might be about ounces (oz). There are (at least) two kinds, ounces of weight and fluid ounces.

Ounces of weight are a subdivision of the pound; there are 16 av. oz. per pound. You have to weigh these on a scale.

Fluid ounces are a subdivision of the gallon. There are 128 fl oz per US gallon. They are also marked on measuring cups ( 8 fl oz per cup). They are a volumetric measurement, you don't weigh them.

Other liquids have different densities, but a gallon of water weighs 8.34 lbs, so 128 fl oz of water weighs 133.4 av. oz., close to 1:1, but not quite.
