The US gallon is 4 quarts (3.78 liters). The Imperial gallon is 4.55 liters.This puzzled me on my first trip to the US until I realised that a US pint weighs 16 ounces, or one Imperial pound. Why an Imperial pint weighs 20 ounces is a mystery to me, but doubtless someone on this forum knows the answer!
US gallon has 4 quarts, each of 2 pints, so a US pint is 16 fluid ounces.
A fluid ounce (unit of volume) is entirely different from the avoidupois ounce used as a unit of weight.
And yes, one grates the cheese first.
