    I'm not very good at converting dry weight to volume.

    It seems curiosity has killed the cat that had my tongue.

    •  Actually I'm not either (0+ / 0-)

      it comes to about 8 oz wet but I have not weighed the beans dry. I just grab my trusty 1C measuring scoop and go for it.

      •  "dry weight" is just what they call measures of (0+ / 0-)

        mass in the Imperial system (oz. Lb., etc).

        it's not a literal -- it's the difference between 128 (liquid) oz.s and 8-1/2 lb.s of water
