Engineer by degree, but I code for a living. Recently switched to using a tablet for leisure internet, like this site, but the on-screen keyboard is horrible, so please forgive my missing letters and things!

comment What is the overall volume of a Corny keg?
In order to answer this, someone could weigh an empty Corny keg, weigh it again with, say, exactly five gallons of water, and weigh it again with the keg full to the brim.

comment Why is less bottling sugar required when naturally carbonating in a keg versus bottles?
By weighing net contents of a "full to the brim" 12 oz bottle (381g) vs a normal fill on a 12 oz bottle (358g), I got 6% headspace. Doing some rough calculations on corny kegs, I got 5% headspace.

The headspace idea seems to conflict with this entry: homebrew.stackexchange.com/questions/10595/…

comment How to adjust alcohol content of a beer?
WLP099 may be considered for super high ABV beers...it restarted fermentation on a beer I made and finished at 14% ABV.

comment How is ABV calculated if distilled spirits are added to beer?
Not part of the original question, but perhaps a comment on how a hydrometer reading would work or not work after addition of spirits would be helpful. Or maybe that would be a separate question.
