It's not so easy to calculate water/steam conversions as water and steam are no ideal gases. But you might look for steam tables anywhere on internet. Calculations are made according to the equations of IAPWS-IF97 (International Association for the Properties of Water and Steam), and some software is available too, see for instance: http://www.cheresources.com/content/articles/physical-properties/thermodynamic-and-transport-properties-of-water-and-steam
By the way, you should arrive at about 370 lt of steam.
