    Sounds like marketing nonsense, without mentioning signs lower right corner. "Fresh Brewed Hourly" ?
    I'm glad products are supplied in different containers, like paint in a milk bottle?
    And it would blow out the comedienne's stand-up joke; house cleaning before a party includes wiping lipstick from milk container spout.

    the mini gallon cold be akin to us back in the day having our keg parties there was the standard keg 8 gallons I believe, which was abought the right size for a Friday night after the game party. Then there was the jumbo keg 12 gallons I think. This would have been the weekend at the lake or beach party keg. And along comes the Super keg 16 gallons. wholey Smokes I can't believe I actually graduated party keg, or for a wake when a bud got married. No not a wake as in after a funeral but pretty much the same thing. However now that the games are over we no longer go to the beach, there are no more collage/ university parties. the marriage is settled down we needed our own weekend relaxation keg so along comes the 1 or 2 gallon mini keg.
    With tea, I'm not a tea drinker thank you very much, the Gallon of tea would be for the whole family probably dad mom and 2 1/2 kids. Don't know where the 1/2 kid came from look it up sometime the teenager wants some tea on his way home from his / her protest march they have no idea about liters or quarts but a mini gallon sounds about the right size to drink since it looks like mom and dad's gallon of tea they bring home but probably small enough for personal consumption.
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    Bearing in mind that your Imperial gallon is different to the US gallon.
    Imperial gallon is 4.546 litres (British spelling) or 160 fluid ounces.
    US gallon is 3.785 liters (American spelling) or 128 fluid ounces.

    Glad I work in litres!

    Actually "litres" is French, from which the word originates.

    Latey, I've been busier than a two-peckered billy goat. I'm not sure if that's metric or other...
