    How much water to use? In ml

    Coffee brewing for cold water they say use 6 oz of water which is close to 200 ml. What is the amount of ml water equivalent to 6 oz? Online calculators say 177, but don't have the same volume as 6 oz

    If you have 177ml of water, you have 6oz. It's not rocket science.

    Oh, I was measuring by weight. 6 oz. on my scale is 200 grams. Usually in conversion from ml to grams its 1:1 like 150ml weight 150g.

    For 1ml of water to weigh 1g, it needs to be pure water (i.e. distilled water) at temperature 39.2F/4C. Why do it the hard way, anyway? 6oz of water is 3/4 cup...

    This is where the whole "Metric System vs. American Measuring System" comes in....the Metric System measures WEIGHT in grams (milligram, kilograms, etc.). It measures VOLUME by liters (milliliter, etc.).

    The `Murrican System uses the term "ounces" petty much interchangeably, which leads to the confusion at hand, where some don`t realize that there`s a distinct difference between "DRY" ounces and "FLUID" ounces.

    Mugsy, we are aware of that. I think paypalboutique doesn't have a measuring cup at all, just a scale. So he was relying on the ratio of water in grams to milliliter to convert, but water has to be pure water at a certain temperature for that conversion to be accurate. So, I suggested for him to get a measuring cup. I agree with Namballe, in his case he'll need one that has both ounces and milliliters in it for easy conversion.

    I saw a YouTube video and the guy used 420 grams water weight on scale for 2 cups, but that weighed more than 12 oz. I weight 200 grams which measures 6 oz on the liquid measuring cup. 177 ml is less than 6 oz on the measuring cup, which is suppose to be the metric equilent of 6 oz. I was just taking it all in and trying to be to exact on water measurement.

    You are confusing 6oz. of volume vs. 6oz. of mass.

    That's been a 'thing' for a while now, to measure water in grams. But it's not necessary. Find a good brew ratio of grams of coffee to fluid ounces of water, and you'll be fine.
