The attention of bakers in Canada is called to the difference between the Imperial Measure, commonly used in Canada, and the Wine Measure, used in the United States.
The Imperial Gallon is equal to 1 1-5 gallons, Wine Measure.
All recipes in this Treatise are based on the Wine Measure. Bakers using the Imperial Measure must adjust their calculations to the Wine Measure by subtracting one-sixth of Imperial Measure for every gallon specified in recipes.
