I don't think grain alchohol is rampant in the lands, and beer and ale is
pretty close to (or heavier) then water weight.

I would need to look it up but alcohol is lighter than water, but not by 
ok 0.785 of water so the 1.5lb estimate is very pure!
This link lists alot of densities, metric but conversion is simple as 
water is 1000/m3
