You guys. Might be surprised how many of us actually use and think metric and use both systems. I don't think that degrees C. is more accurate than degrees F.
In liquid and weight I prefer Metric.
Your answer however is big business $$$$$

+1 Scotty ... There's no compelling reason to switch given the associated costs.

Most techies I know (myself included) can switch back and forth with little or no effort. I believe many of our forum members use gallons, quarts, liters, degrees C/F pretty interchangeably. So it's not a big deal. For calculations & temps I prefer metric. But I find the binary nature of the american volume measurement convenient since I seem to be iteratively doubling/halving things so frequently.

Now if you'll just excuse me, I planted 20 rods of barley in a field that's three furlongs from my house ... I have to see how many pecks of barley I can harvest from it. I'm hoping to increase my beer yield by at least three hogsheads this year. So I better get started. BigGrin"

If you don't look at it, it is delicious.,. Like SCRAPPLE.. We make our own scrapple but without the pigs Misc parts. We just use pork bones gotten from when we bone butts for sausages.

Now that might depend on where you were raised. When I look at scrapple I start getting a terrible craving. Those uncooked bricks are only minutes away from the finest breakfast patties known to man! BigGrin

It's getting harder and harder to find good scrapple these day ... something to do with cholesterol or other nonsense. My family cuts it thin, dips it in some whisked egg, rolls it lightly in flour, then cooks it hot enough to get a nice crispy, dark brown exterior with a soft interior. An over-easy egg is usually placed on top.

BTW: serving scrapple without plenty of ketchup is considered a serious offense!

Indeed... The first time I ate it I was young, we were out on Chesapeake Bay at 3am fishing for flounder, and I just grabbed a sandwich off the top of the stack...

JB I like scrapple with syrup or just plain--never catsup. My lady friend from PA definitely uses catsup. We will ht the redding market in Philly in a couple of weeks. Nice German goodies there

Scotty when you get to Philly go by the Penrose Diner. They have great scrapple and the breakfast prices are pretty reasonable

Now we're talking!! Then hit City Tavern for a late lunch and have some braised rabbit or roast duckling. But be prepared to drop more than a sawbuck/plate! Wink
