Maybe you’re trying to add just the right amount of sugar to your must, or measure out crystallized honey for mead. If you make wine or mead long enough, you’ll want to measure large quantities of liquid. I have a 2-cup (500 ml) measuring cup, but that didn’t cut it when I needed to measure 1 liter of honey and 4 liters of water. So I made this “9-liter measuring cup” from a 2-gallon bucket. I filled the smaller measuring cup to the 500 ml line, made a hash mark with a permanent marker, and repeated until I got to the 9-liter mark.
Quick, easy, and costs almost nothing – if only I could say that about all my equipment!
