Can we just switch to metric already?

I have reached a point where I prefer the metric system to U.S customary units of measure.  Working in either system is easy whereas converting between the systems is a pain.

I'm about ready to go this route in my brewing myself. Being a pharmacist, converting from fl oz to mL and oz to grams is second nature for me, and I use them interchangeably as if they were all just different marks on the same scale. The one thing that isn't as easy for me is moving my grain measurements from pounds & ounces to grams/kg. But I think I'm just going to force myself to move over because I think it will be worth it in the end.

I just took the plunge and flipped all the switches in BrewFather to metric.  g, L, and °C from here on out.
