I'm a newbie but I've been lurking for awhile and brewing for a couple of years. I switched to all-grain a few months ago and have made some good beers.
However...I want to make GREAT beers, with relatively reproducible results. One issue I keep having is over- or under-shooting my target volumes in my keggle. What's the best way to measure the volume so I know what I've got after a sparge, or so that I can measure my post-boil volume and calculate how much I lost during the boil or how much I'm losing in the bottom of the keggle after draining?
I tried calibrating using a plastic spoon but it's gosh-darn hard to read. I'm hoping someone has a better solution.
Thanks in advance!
