You can make a small table with two columns "litres" and "cm". Print it out and have it laminated.
You can make different table for your fermenter.

(not actual numbers, just for example)
Code: Select all
Litres   cm
10 l    11,5 
11 l    12,65
12 l    14,00
etc ....

Obviously you have to take the measurement from the same area. I measure from the centre.

When I fill the kettle, I use water meter because those things are actually accurate. Smallest increment it shows is 100 ml

Well, since we all use a BM we can make standard tables for BM20/50. Anybody with a reliable table available for sharing? Speidel themselves maybe?

BM has straight walls so you really need to measure only first few litres and calculate the rest
I make my own copper/ss chillers (immersion) - 20l & 50l and counterflow (cfc), Twitter: @BruuLog , FB BruuLog

There was this article in BYO for etching volume measurements values on a brew kettle... not sure I would do it on the Braumeister itself but maybe on a dip stick... ... e-projects

I'm more interested in expected OG than volume. If you have to dilute, that's not a problem. Using the BM I have no experience of the opposite. If I'm interested in the level, I'll take a peek and gauge from the rod markers.
