Ask Bob Brewer: How much should a keg of Anchor beer weigh? – Posted by at 10:15 pm | Category: Ask Bob Brewer Jessica (via email): How much should a keg of Anchor beer weigh? Bob: I’ve been asked this question a lot over the years, Jessica – usually when a bar wants to reconcile their daily receipts with the volume of beer used. The only real way to determine how much beer is left in a keg is to weigh it, but you have to know how much it weighs to begin with.

A full keg of Anchor beer should weigh about 140 lb. The empty weighs about 30 lb., but can vary a bit depending on the manufacturer (we’ve had several), and the beer itself weighs 110 lb. For all practical purposes beer weighs the same as water, which is 8.34 lb. per gallon or 2.2 lb. per liter. A 50-liter keg X 2.2 lb.

= 110 lb. If you want to be picky you can figure in the ABV of the beer and subtract the difference in weight because ethanol weighs 6.584 lb. per gallon. But the difference is slight, something like 1.075 lb. in a 50-liter keg of 5% ABV beer, and is somewhat taken up by the fact that beer contains heaver compounds.

Draught Beer Equipment Hire UK’S INDEPENDENT BEER AND CIDER RETAILER OF THE YEAR 2023 – 100% COLD STORED BEER – FREE LOCAL DELIVERY – NATIONAL SHIPPING AVAILABLE Are you looking to be the hostess with mostess at your next party? We can provide draught kegs along with dispensing equipment from many UK breweries.

Most of our available kegs are 30L KeyKegs, approximately 60 cm x 30 cm and weigh about 35 kg when full. Some breweries only offer Steel Kegs which are heavier, but we can also source these for you if that is the format that your required beer comes in A 30L key keg contains roughly 52 pints. Key kegs operate like a large bag in box.

An aluminium bag is encased within a hard plastic shell. When air is pumped into the shell, pressure is applied to the bag which in turn pushes the beer out of the tap. Please note that due to their fragility, kegs are collection only. Some beers are readily available while others have limited availability and we need to confirm with the brewery prior to accepting an order.

- Due to this, we ask that you give us at least a week’s notice.
- If it’s a beer emergency and you require it sooner, give us a call and we’ll try our best to get it for you.
- Along with your keg we offer the rent one of our Lindr machines to chill and dispense the beer.
- The single tapped Lindr machines are £50 to hire and the double tapped ones are £70, with an additional £100 deposit to cover any potential damage.

These are easy to setup where you simply plug in, wait 5 minutes and then pour ice cold draught beer. You will be shown how to operate the machine and given a full run through on how to get a good flow and minimise foaming. In both cases we ask that you return the keg along with the equipment within a week.
