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.

Cheers!
(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)

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...

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.

This is interesing, but I wonder if one would need to passivate again the BM after doing it...

Doubt it. Quite a small area.

I quite fancy an etched dipstick. But for no good reason :D
