Thought you all would like a bit of laughter before hitting the pillows.  So the unit is stuck with lbs.... so I go to the scale... 1 gal weighs 8.75lbs.  Got 3 gals.... so thats 26.25 lbs.  I have some honey and brown sugar in the recipe as well... however.... and here is where the humor comes in.... it is est an Alcohol by volume at.... 30.57.  Ok... I still need to tweak it :)

Look at the Apple entries for fruits in the grain extensions for some rough numbers.

Measure the "brix" or sugar content of the cider and enter that number into the "Dry Yield Fine Grain" field of a duplicate entry for a grain.  This will yield the potential SG.  (1.005-1.007 for apples)

sorry, you are stuck with gallons

Different tack but i highly reccomend perry (pear cider) a much superior flavour.
