Everything you need to know about measuring and converting metric milliliters to quarts. We’ll look at the history of these metric and imperial measurements as well as how many milliliters are in a quart, and other helpful measurements!
How Many mL In A Quart?
There are 946 milliliters in a quart
If you are a winemaker or into brewing kombucha or beer and want to try any of the vast number of international recipes, you’ll need to be able to move between imperial and metric units. To help make it easier, conversions between some of the most common recipe amounts are provided below!
What Is a Quart?
The word quart comes from the Latin word Quartus meaning a fourth, and the later French word Quarte (or a 1/4 portion). In liquid measurements, this means 1/4 of a gallon.
Like other measurements, not all quarts are the same! An English quart is 38.43 ounces (unlike the U.S quart, which is 32 oz). However, this makes sense when you consider the fact that their gallon is 153.72 oz (versus our 128 oz).
Now wouldn’t the metric system be easier? Well probably, but we Americans like our ounces, cups, pints, quarts, and gallons, so we will likely keep using the imperial measurement system for a while longer. With so many great recipes available online coming from the rest of the world in metrics, however, we need to be able to convert readily between metric and imperial measurements.
What Is a Milliliter?
The liter was introduced in France in 1795 by the revolutionary government after overthrowing the monarchy and everything associated with it, and so the world in time got the metric system. Just cutting off the heads of the king and queen wasn’t enough. The people of France decided to throw out the ancient imperial measurement system as well.
The metric system, however, didn’t come into existence overnight, and it took a while for nations to agree upon the relevant lengths, weights, and volumes that became today’s metric system. In 1901 an international agreement defined the liter as the volume of 1 kilogram of pure water. A milliliter was then defined as 1/1,000th of a liter or the volume of one gram of pure water.
