Small Cabin Forum / Off-Grid Living / Lead acid battery build

So I'm looking into building my own battery bank for hybrid system. It is all hypothetical at this point as we are still in the planing stages. I know the risks of lead exposure and am equipped PPE for it. That being said I can't seem to find any info on how many coils or the volume of acid need to generate X volts or Ah.
I guess what I'm getting at is if I build a battery in a 1 gallon jar with max coils what's its potential vs one in a 5 gallon jar? Like I said all hypothetical, 40g fish tank... Better or worse. If I'm over thinking this just let me know

I have to ask why build a lead-acid battery from home made lead-acid cells?

You do realize you need many cells; only 2 volts per cell, no matter how big the cell. Bigger cells, more lead, more acid, makes more AH.

No idea where to start looking for details.
