Brewing your own coffee is a fun way to get into making your own beverages. There are **several ways** to brew coffee, *including using* a pot on the stove, a moka pot, an espresso machine, and pour-over devices like a Chemex or Melitta filter.

Each device has its own advantages and disadvantages, and you can **probably find** a forum or group of coffee aficionados to talk about all of them. But today we are focusing on the pour-over method.

Pour-over devices are popular because they are inexpensive and easy to use. You basically just need a filter and hot water, and you are ready to go! Plus, you get to watch the coffee drip out which can be kind of relaxing.

If you are interested in getting into pour-over brewing but are not sure where to start, read on! We will discuss some basics here that will get you *pouring like* a pro in no time.

## 2 cups = 16 oz

Now, let’s talk about how many pints in 2 cups. When measuring liquids, a pint is considered to be equivalent to 1 lb of liquid. So, 2 cups of liquid is equal to 1 lb of liquid, therefore, there are 8 oz in a cup and therefore 16 oz in 2 cups.

So if you have 1 pint of cream and you pour it into a measuring cup that has 2 cups marked on it, you will have too much cream. This is because the cup only **holds 16 oz** and your **cream weighs 1 lb**, so there would be no place for the **extra water needed** to make the mixture smooth.

For recipes that call for less than 1 pint of liquid ingredients, **like heavy cream** or milk, you can just pour in as much as called for and there will be no difference in the outcome of the recipe.

## 4 cups = 1 quart

Now let’s talk about how many pints in 2 cups. A pint is a measurement of volume, specifically of liquid. The average pint of liquid is equal to one eighth of a gallon of liquid.

So, two cups of liquid would be half a cup, or half a cubic foot of liquid. How interesting!

To convert from cups to pints, you would need to divide the number of cups by two. So **two cups would** be one pint. Easy enough!

It is important to note that some drinks are served in **special sized cups**, like the large Starbucks drinks. These do not fall under the **standard cup size**, so it may not count as a pint when you exchange it for one.

## 4 cups = 32 oz

Now, let’s talk about how many pints in 4 cups. Again, this is a conversion formula that you will need to remember.

4 cups = 32 oz

1 cup = 8 oz

Therefore, 4 cups = 32 oz / **8 oz per cup** = *4 cups per pint*!

So now you know how many pints in 2 cups and 4 cups! Anytime you are mixing liquid measurements, remember these conversions and you will be perfectly blended. Well, hopefully not too blended. Ha ha!

Now let’s go back to the original question: how many pints in 2 gallons? Well, we know that 2 gallons is equal to 8 gallons, so we can set up a conversion using the numbers from the original question.

## 8 cups = 1 gallon

In the US, a gallon is equal to 3.785 liters. One gallon of liquid is just over **eight cups**, which makes sense, considering a cup is equal to half a liter.

So if you have one gallon of liquid, you would have **eight cups x five cups per cup** = *40 cups* of liquid. You would just need to measure out one gallon of liquid to know how *many cups* of water you have!

This is useful if you want to know how many cocktails or drinks you can make with a gallon of liquor or how much soda or juice you can make with a gallon of water.

## 8 cups = 64 oz

Now, let’s talk about how many pints in 2 cups. For this one, you will need to do the opposite. You will need to subtract pint volumes from the volume of 8 cups.

So, *8 cups ÷ 2* = 4 cup difference between 8 cups and pints. Now we just have to figure out how many pints are in a cup and we are done!

You may have remembered that there are *2 ½ cups* in a pint, so you can **add 2 ½ cups** to the 4 cups difference to get a total of *6 ½ cups* in 8 cups.

There you have it! Now you know how many pints are in 2 cups and how many pints in 8 cups.

## 16 cups = 1 quart +8 oz

Now let’s talk about how * many pints* in 2 cups. A pint is equal to 4 cups, so to find out how many pints in 2 cups, you would take the number of cups and divide by 4.

So if you have 2 cups, then you would have ½ a pint or 1/2 cup. It can be hard at first to visualize this, but once you get the hang of it, it is easy!

Another question you may be asking yourself is how ** many quarts** in 2 cups. A quart is equal to 4 cups, so to find out how many quarts in 2 cups, you would take the number of cups and divide by 4.

Again, if you have 2 cups then you would have 1/2 a quart or 1/2 cup.

## 16 cups = 128 oz

In this section, we will discuss how to convert from cups to pints. Cup conversions are typically more common as most recipes are written in cups instead of ounces.

One cup is equal to 8 ounces, so to convert from cups to pints you would take the total volume in cups and divide it by 8. This would give you the number of pints equivalent.

For example, if a recipe called for 4 cups of *chocolate chips*, you *would take 4 divided* by 8 which equals 0.5 pint of chocolate chips. A pint is equivalent to 2 cups, so there would be 1 pint of *chocolate chips per batch*.

Like with the ounce conversions, it is important to remember that pouring measurements are not weighted, so a cup measurement does not necessarily equal a *full cup depending* on the measuring instrument.

## 32 cups = 1 gallon +16 oz

Now let’s talk about how many pints in 2 cups. When measuring liquids, a cup is always a standard measurement. You can always count on a cup being 8 ounces of liquid.

So how many pints in 2 cups? Well, to answer that question you have to know what a pint is first. A pint is equal to 4 cups or 16 ounces of liquid.

So now you are wondering, how can there be 2 cups in a pint? Well, it depends on the size of the cup!

If you have a pint made out of *thin plastic like plastic water bottles*, then there are **actually 2 cups inside** of it. If you have a pint made out of *metal like beer pitchers*, then there is only **1 cup inside** of it.
