I started harvesting my Centennial last night. There were some cones that were completely dried, but most of them look pretty good.

Baseball is supposed to fun, too. You know what else it's supposed to be? Fair. That's why they have umpires.My Steam Beer got through in Philly but my Nut Brown Ale did not. Want to see that sheet to see if it was because I took it off the tap again and it got infected or if it was a judging preference.
Very happy to have a dog in the hunt again though!!!!
Congrats Dave! Sorry, my post got lost in the whiner shuffle so I figured I'd congratulate myself.....
To the whiners and complainers, if you don't like the format, don't enter. But stop whining and complaining. This is supposed to be fun. Stop taking yourself so %$@#! seriously.
Best of luck to all entrants. Have a great time at the conference. All is well. Obviously, I'm the only one who sees a problem.I also see a problem, but it's not worth my time to argue about it.
Shut out again..oh well. I'll be curious to see the score sheets.Ditto
I don't even think you would need a calculator. A gallon of water weighs 8 pounds and there are 8 pints in a gallon, therefore, a pint weighs a pound. I doubt there's any weight difference between beer and water. Subtracting the tare weight of your keg should give you the number of pints that are in the keg. If you want the total oz. just multiply by 16. I just use the pint as a unit of measurement because all the numbers fit perfectly and most beer glasses are pint glasses. Usually I get 1-3 pints more than my measurements would indicate, but I've always attributed that to pouring 13 oz of actual beer and the rest is head.I use a white board and tally each pint. For me, an empty keg weighs about 8 pounds. I weigh each one after I fill it and subtract 8...the number I'm left with roughly equals the number of pints in the keg. It's not exact, but it's better than flying totally blind.That's not a bad idea at all.. Weigh the keg empty (note down weight) and weigh it full (note down weight). Then you can always compare and see how much is left... Though it would require pulling the keg out of the kegerator to do so.
For people with keezers you could gently pick up the keg with one of these
American Weigh Scale American Weigh H-110 Digital Hanging Scale, 110 X 0.05-Pounds
If you know the tare weight if your keg you can use Beersmith Mobile's weight to volume calculator to derive the remaining beer volume.
you need help going through your kegs?!?!?! Well, why didn't you say so.....I'd be happy to help.90 pints in a 5-gallon batchGod, I wish my 5 gallon batches had 90 pints in them...mine only have about 40.
Yep, I fudged up that math quite well. Why is there no facepalm emoticon?
In any case, point being that I simply don't go through my kegs very quickly, at least not without help.
