gutting

In Iceland, a unit of capacity, also called a kutting. It reached Denmark through Icelandic exports. In the 19th century two guttings are reported: a small gutting = 4 potter, and a large gutting = 8 potter. That being so, before 1683, the small gutting was 3.80 liters and the large gutting 7.61 liters, and after the reforms of 1683, the small gutting was 3.87 liters and the large gutting 7.74 liter. The large gutting was about 1/16 øltønde.
