BM50 VOLUME CALCULATOR

Unread postby Sportyone » Wed Jun 11, 2014 2:38 pm

Hi Guys,

Made a simple calculator for the bm50 to determine how many litres are in vessel with just one measurement.
Hopefully it should work ok.
If not, I will just stick to drinking beer :beerbang:

Thanks Stephen, I'm going to use this today. Couldn't find a ruler in inches so I modified the file to use decimeters which translates directly to liters.
This will help as thusfar I have rubbed a steel rule down the rod to find the top notch and then measured the extra height. Then extrapolated to get a rough volume.
Not quite NASA specs!

Hope you are enjoying your BM brewing.

Feel free to share your version too ;)

On a side note: I would love a permanent marking on the inside of my BM, so I don't need a ruler anymore.

OK now I see it Niels; not clear in blue -- can you make just that tab green? :wink:

So lets try:
This is just the very basic nuts and bolts to see if it works -- no fancy formatting etc!

That's strike one! Three strikes and you are out! (unless you send some beer over...) :D

Thanks for sharing! I'll check it out tomorrow.

I made a measuring stick that determines the volume from the top down rather than the bottom up so that I don't need to go sticking things in my beer (especially after the boil).

Niels I will rather send you some beer! This is going to be a good one :)

Robert thanks for that link to HBT. I heard about etching SS but didn't know it was so easy. Definitely going to to give it a go, although your top-to-bottom measure is a good idea.

OK, final answer; I'm going with Dicko. I have some aluminium strips and while direct etching looks pro, my old-age ADHD will probably lead me to get something wrong, and it is non-reversible.
(the ADHD and the stuffed-up BM :oops: )

Thanks Dicko
