The instructions here say NINE cups of water and FOUR cups of broth. Is that correct? Where did the reviewer get the TWO cups of water?

It makes a delicious thick soup & a great gift! I made it in my crock-pot/slowcooker. Although the recipe calls for only 2 cups of water, I still used the 4 cups of broth. I'm making it today with ham broth instead of chicken broth & a ham bone, with a little bit of ham added---to see how it is with some meat.
IN ANSWER TO THE ? RE: (oops, forgot caps were on) enough water, in a crock pot, the vegies and meat, if there is any, give off a tremendous amount of water/liquid, so 2 cups is more than enough*!*~~~~*!*~~~*!* Do NOT add any more or you won't have soup, you'll have overcooked and melted ingredients! Long time, tried everything and made ALL the mistakes, Crock Pot User in Tucson, AZ ENJOY*!* I'll be putting this up for my friends and family, what a delightful, inexpensive present to give, INDEED*!*
Looks wonderful! We're making them for gifts. However, the print version says to use only 2 cups of water if you're using a crock-pot. Is that really enough liquid to cook the beans and barley?
