anybody have good sanke keg dimensions for proper volume?

Postby Steve973 » Mon Dec 04, 2006 9:53 pm

I was trying to add vessels to my session, but I don't really have the internal measurements of a sanke keg. What do you all use? Using the height of the outside of the entire keg yields a calculation of about 22.8 gallons. What do you use as a height to give 15.5 gallons?

Ok, I'll reply to myself since the calculation is pretty easy, and I'm actually a little embarrassed for not realizing it earlier. Obviously, getting the volume of a keg is basically figuring out the volume of a cylinder, which is given by

pi * radius squared * height

Since a sanke keg is 15.5 gallons, and one gallon is darn close to 231 cubic inches, 15.5 gallons is 3580.5 cubic inches

3.14 * 8.5 squared * height = 3580.5, so let's solve for height:

3580.5 / (pi * 8.5 squared) = height

15.77 = height

So if you're trying to enter measurements for a sanke keg for any of your "vessels", use 17 inches length, 17 inches width, and 15.77 inches height for a calculated volume of 15.5 gallons. Of course, make sure to specify "circular/elliptical" for the vessel shape, which should be the default.

I measured my Sanke mash tun and got the following:

15.5 L x 15.5 W x 19H

Psst, don't draw attention to the fact that I care about the dimensions of anything other than my wife! :lol:

oh, thats too funny. I just reread what I posted. I actually did want to know what it weighed because I'm too lazy to weigh mine.

Database for equipment...

Hello Everyone,

A number of you have asked for a database of equipment. Since we are unsure of what equipment specs you would like added to BTP we will call upon you. We have started a topic specifically for equipment. Please post detailed equipment specs to the following post:

Here is a link to the equipment topic.
