Egad! That means I need to collect 3 gallons of gill to make 3 oz for a
batch of beer.  I might have to look in other people's yards, too.

Thanks for all the info, everyone.  By the way, does anyone know if "gill"
is pronounced with a "g" sound (like the breathing parts of fishes) or a
soft "j" (as if it was a French word)?
