A Nifty Idea

How many times have you tried to guess how much beer is left in a keg by gently lifting it? And are you also as bad as I am at guessing? Well, then you might do like me, and buy a spring scale for about $10-$12.

Water weighs about 8.3 pounds per gallon, and for the level of precision we're involved with here, beer may be assumed to weigh the same. Weigh your kegs empty, and write the tare weight on the side with a sharpie, and wonder no more how much beer is left. Gross weight-tare/8.3=gallons, quick-n-EZ!
