barrel content

An official calibration should be done every four to five years as wooden barrels become smaller. The easiest way to determine the barrel volume is by weighing the empty barrel and the barrel filled with water. Further possibilities are a measuring or counting clock or with a yardstick (table required). When determining by means of an oblique measure (binding sight), the bunghole is used to measure the two angles, dividing by two and reading the number of liters directly.
