Ok. I did the research :-( and will post the answer for other newbies to save them the leg work and time.
First, using a Lowe's or H Depot 5-gallon bucket (1.25" down from the rim on the Lowe's and 1.5" on the H Depot can), I measured 25 gallons on the Brut.
The top of the ridge (roughly 6" down from the top of trim) is just about 25-gallons. The 6" empty area will enough room for splashing or whatever while mixing salt. I'll be using a mag drive (either 5 or 7) which will also facilitate the water change process.
Hopes this helps someone else.
