Can someone post information regarding inches per gallon or gallons per inch of a typical Sankey keg? By my calculations, the dish of the bottom, up to the weld of the dish, is just over one gallon. What is the approximate volume at each rib ring? Of course the mid weld is 7.75 gallons.

Yeah there's too much variation for that information to be standard
