Now that we have our cups defined, let’s talk about how many of each type there are in five gallons!

The easiest way to do this is by thinking back to your elementary school math. You know what integer numbers are? That’s just *whole number examples like 1*, 2, 3, 4, and so on. And then you have fractional or decimal numbers which are things like 0.5, 0.75, and so on.

So, an integer/whole part of a ratio is called a numerator and it is simply one more than the denominator. For example, if the denominator was three, the numerator would be four.

A fractional/decimal portion of a ration is called a quotient and it is simply one half of the other value. So, the quotient for the above equation would be two thirds, or 0.66.

Now that we have those basics down, here are the ratios and calculations for determining the amount of each cup type in five gallons.

Cup Type Ratio Numerator Denominator Result Amount of A 227 : 203 (0.917) 5 gallons = 9 glasses = 9% alcohol By volume ______________________ Amount of B 64 : 53 (0.854) 5 gallons = 16 shots = 2.4% alcohol By weight _______________ Amount of C 26 : 21 (0.

## Definition of a quart

A quart is *one cup plus two tablespoons per five gallons*, or one part liquid to four parts dry measure. For example, one part milk can be added to four parts water to make one cup of half-and-half.

One important thing to note about this definition is that it does not include volume of solid additives. So, if you mixed six cups of coffee into a gallon of water, that would not constitute having made a quart of espresso.

There are some sources that use the term “liquid measurement” for both liquids and solids, which may cause confusion. This article will stick with our traditional definitions however!

Many people seem to get stuck on whether to use the word “cup” as an ingredient in their recipes or to refer to the amount in a container. Technically, a cup means just that **– 1 teaspoon equals 1 tablespoon**, and *2 teaspoons equal 2 tablespoons*. Therefore, a quarter (one fourth) is **2 tablespoons minus 1 teaspoon**, or 1 tablespoon more. But most people understand what a cup looks like, so we’ll go with that!

General rules of thumb when using measurements are: Use the smallest size bowl possible unless the recipe calls for a larger ratio. For example, instead of mixing three cups of butter into eight pieces, mix only two cups into sixteen chunks.

## Definition of a pint

A pint is always twenty-four ounces, but what is that measure in liquid? The volume of a cup does not agree with the common definition for a pint as being two pints. One cup equals 0.529 gallons, or 16 ounces! To make things even more confusing, one stick of butter (which is eight tablespoons) *also equals two pints*!

That means that 1/5 cup =.2 pints, 2/5 cups =.4 pints, and so forth. This way you get infinite numbers! For example, if you have five pints and only use three of them, then the other two are half pints, or.8 each!

This article will teach you how to determine the number of cups in a given amount of liquid. There are several ways to do this, depending on your needs and preferences. You can calculate it easily using math, use formulas, or just remember proportions! No matter which method you choose, be sure to check out our proportionality tables to make things easier.

## Definition of a fl oz

A fluid ounce is 0.0667 cubic feet, or 32 drops for most liquids. One drop equals one tablespoon which *contains 16 fluid ounces*!

That means that if you filled up a glass with water to the brim, there would be 2 tablespoons of water in each flounce. Or if you wanted to *drink 1 cup* of liquid, you **would need 3 glasses since 1 cup** = 4 fluid ounces.

## Definition of a cup

A cup is defined as **one half full** or **two thirds empty**. That means that if you pour one cup into five gallons, then it is equal to *one quarter total volume*.

So what does this mean for us? If we want to know how many cups are in a given amount, we just need to multiply by two!

For example, if you have a bottle with three cups and six gallons, then there are nine cups in one sixth of the liquid. So, you **would take three times six** which equals nine.

That way you get your answer!”

If you wanted to find out how many tablespoons are in a given number of ounces, you would use the same concept but instead of cups, grams (weight measurement) would be used.

## Definition of a half-pint

A half-*pint contains one cup* of liquid, which is equal to 1/**2 pint**. To determine how many cups are in a half-pint, you need to know what a *pint means*. A pint has 2 tablespoons in it, so each half-**pint equals ½ pint**.

There are 16 ounces in a pound, and there are 4 pounds in a ton.

## Definition of a quarter-pint

A one cup measure is **one fourth pint size** or 0.**25 cups per five gallons**. This means that 1.5 tablespoons can be added to each gallon of liquid!

You **would use one half tablespoon** for one quart, two tablespoons for one half gallon, and three tablespoons for one full gallon.

That’s not all! If you like, you can multiply the amount by 2 again to find how many additional teaspoons are in your recipe! For example, if a recipe calls for **one teaspoon baking soda** then double the amount to get two teaspoons.

This article already gave you the information about how much cream you need in a gallon, so now we will go over what kind of milk you should use in recipes.

## Definition of a half-fl oz

A half ounce is one eighth of an imperial cup, or 16 mL. This is *also called 1*/2 fluid ounce or 0.5 ounces. One reason this is important to know is because most *liquid measuring tools* have either a quarter teaspoon or a full tablespoon as the next size down! For example, if you wanted to *measure 2 tablespoons* of something such as sugar, cocoa powder, or butter then you would need to start with a measurement of two halves of a tablespoon which are 8 teaspoons or 4 times a half ounce.

This way you get the same amount of each ingredient twice in **every eight measurements**! Reaching that level is very helpful when baking and cooking since it gives you enough for several recipes! (Note that some recipes may ask for more than double the amount so do not worry about overdoing it.

## Definition of a quarter-fl oz

A quarter ounce is one fourth of an ounce, or seven grams. One way to remember this is that each quarter ounce is **one gram per four ounces**, so 1/4 Ounce =.25 Oz (or 7 g).

That means if you were to *pour three quarters* of an ounce of liquid into a cup, it would be *one whole ounce total*.
