Why should I weigh my beer kegs?
Weighing beer kegs allows managers to accurately track draft beer usage. When compared to draft beer sales from your cash register or POS system, managers can easily determine the amount of beer poured that wasn't sold.
How do I know how much beer is in the keg after weighing?
To find the fluid ounces of a tapped keg, the manager will take the full weight of the keg and subtract the tare weight (empty keg weight.) We even supply you various keg tare weights at no charge!
Why is the draft beer inventory software necessary?
After each inventory, management enters the net keg weight (full keg weight less the keg's tare weight) into the software. Then they enter draft beer sales from the cash register or POS system. The software will calculate any "missing" draft beer sales. (The retail value of draft beer poured less draft beer sold.) Use the Pounds to Ounces Calculator at the bottom of the Inventory Worksheet to convert the scale readings from pounds into ounces, which is then entered into the Inventory Worksheet.
Is it alright to keep the scale in the refrigerator under the keg to continuously monitor the keg's volume?
If you choose to perform inventories inside of your walk in cooler the manufacturer recommends that you leave the Keg Scale inside of the cooler all of the time. Taking the Keg Scale from the cold climate of the walk in cooler to a warmer climate can cause condensation to form inside of the display case which could ultimately damage the unit. Imagine wearing glasses and you go from the cold into the heat...what happens? Your glasses fog up. The same happens taking the Keg Scale from the cold walk in into a warm stock room. Inventories can be performed monthly, weekly, daily or at the end of a bartender's shift to spot check their sales accuracy.
Can I use the keg scale for other purposes?
Absolutely! The keg scale is great for weighing anything you want to monitor in the kitchen or bar, as long as it is less than 400 pounds. Many kitchen managers and chef's use the keg scale to weigh purchases being received from vendors to make sure they are getting exactly what they paid for on the invoice. Steaks, chicken, fish, pans of food and other items can be weighed and inventoried to help control costs. You can even weigh your staff if they are having a contest to see how much weight they can lose.
