Yeah, I'm a smart-@$$, but at least I'm likeable.
It'll be easier to find (or purchase) a scale. You'll be able to use it for measuring extract, sugars, hops, etc. down the road. You won't be sorry.
NB sells some nice Escalia electronic scales. You can justify the purchase to your wife/GF/S.O. by saying that it can also be used in the kitchen!!! Woo-hoo!!!!

I'd have to disagree with this. Corn sugar is definitely less dense and fluffier. Again there's no way to be exactly accurate with volumes vs. weight except for water. My calculations in the past were around 5 oz./cup.

Place your corn sugar in an open cake pan and place in the oven at 230 deg F for about 8 hours and let cool in the desiccator. Then you can find the real volume vs. weight of corn sugar. (I don't go to those lengths..)
I hate the Packers so much, I wouldn't cheer for them if they were playing al Qaeda.
A fine beer may be judged with only one sip, but it's better to be sure.
