Andy, how do you get an accurate weight measurement on your keg? I've tried to use my bathroom scale but it isn't wide enough to make a solid base, so the keg sits on it unevenly. I've tried standing on it, but mine maxes out at 400 and me + keg should be >400.

Will,
Best option is to buy a hanging scale. That is, a scale that you hang up from a hook with another hook below to hang whatever you are weighing. You will need some sort of straps or chains to hold the item you are weighing. If that is not an option, you can put two 2x4s across your scale and set the keg on them to keep all the weight on the scale. Just don't forget to subtract the weight of the wood. And if you can't read the scale readout that way, you can add two more 2x4s perpendicular to the first two to make a sort of cross hatch design and set the keg on top of it. Or weigh an empty keg and weigh out all the ballast you fill it with as you go and add everything up to get the total weight.




Shot filled kegs are expensive, but very nice,
Andy Deck
