What about filling up 4 liter, 6 times, and every time pouring it into the 9 liter?
That way 6 liters will spill out.
And we have thus measured out 6 liters.
The problem did not state to have the final result in one of the provided barrels, right?
Let me know who thinks what ...

Fill up 9con
Poor 9con into 4con - leaving 5 in 9con.
Poor 5 into 4con - leaving 1 in 9con
Poor 1 into 4con
Fill up 9con
Poor 3 from 9con into 4con (1 was already there) - leaving 6 in 9con.
