Hiya guys, i'm brand new to homebrew and the forum, already found it so usefull!!

Might sound daft, but I run a Micropub, we use Door counters, attached to the hand pulls to count cask pint, one click for a half, two for a pint. A really easy and cheap way to keep a count.

another alternative is a spare set of bathroom, fishing, or luggage scales. beer weighs about (1 x beers FG)kg per litre so weigh the keg empty and deduct that from any filled measurements taken, and divide by (1 x beers FG) to determine volume in litres.
(ie if the beers FG was 1.010 and the empty keg weighs 3kg, and the current mass of the keg is 13.1kg, you have 10l of beer in it.. 13.1-3 = 10.1. 10.1/1.01 = 10)
