Just realized it yesterday: I filled the BM50 with water up to the top marker (= 55 liter).
But before putting the water into the BM, I measured it in a plastic bucket that also has markers. Result: I had to put 63 liter (according to the marked plastic bucket) to reach the 55 liter-mark in the BM.
Weird. Anyone knows why?

The markers on your plastic bucket must be incorrect. Simple as that.

Use your bathroom scales next time and ignore the volume markers. 1L=1kg.

I have a variety of plastic jugs buckets etc and not one is accurate and none are the same as each other.

I would trust the Speidel measurement before I trusted a bucket that was probably made in China. :roll:

The worst thing that can happen if I die is that my wife will sell all my brewing equipment for what I told her I paid for it
