I built my own brewing pots out of some 15 gallon kegs a few years back. I think I was drinking when I built them because the sight glasses are at different levels making it tough to remember how much liquid is in each tank. So every now and again I will “measure” and mark it off on the kettle which eventually washes/burns off. So now for my boil kettle I am posting it here on my blog where I can find it:
Keg A: Boil Kettle
- One inch below the middle weld line on the keg is 7 gallons. My most common pre-boil volume.
- 6 gallons is just at the top of the bottom bulge on the keg.
- 5 gallons is just at the bottom of the bottom bulge on the keg.
- 4 gallons is inside the brass nut on the sight glass.
