You think you know, but you have no idea...

According to good 'ol Wikipedia,

"A bushel is a unit of dry volume, usually subdivided into eight local gallons in the systems of Imperial units and U.S. customary units. It is used for volumes of dry commodities, not liquids, most often in agriculture. It is abbreviated as bsh. or bu.

* 1 U.S. bushel = 35.23907017 litres = 8 corn/dry gallons = 9.309177489 wine/liquid gallons
* 1 Imperial bushel = 36.36872 litres = 8 Imperial gallons"

Mmm. 9.3 wine gallons.
