11 3/8 inches at the top it tapers down to 10 1/4 at the bottom.

Thanks Chuck. Well, that makes my volume calculations more difficult lol.

I have a bottling bucket but not available at the moment since it’s at my brewing partners house and he’s not around. I’m making a sheet that will have a list of heights in inches for each volume. For example, 2 gallons is x inches, etc. My bucket has volume in 1 gallon increments up to 5 gallons but I don’t trust those. I’m trying to get more accurate with my bottling volume so can use the correct amount of priming sugar.

Ok. Gotcha.

You could always just add a gallon of water at a time to the bucket and make marks too.

I hate math. :roll:

LoL, my solution exactly! I majored in math and I still don’t like it!

Mark

Me no too good math too…

Couldn’t you just average the two distances?

Close enough for professional homebrewing.

True. I’m going to measure the bucket when I get a chance to be sure it cones in like Chuck.
