BC2000 Small Keg
In Stock - $249
The BC2000 keg scale is built for small walk-ins and not-to-big keg inventories. It's small base size allows easier weighing in tight spaces, yet can still weigh half barrel kegs easily with its 440 total pound weighing capacity.
The BC2000 keg scale has a small 12.4" X 11" platform base with 440lb weighing capacity, perfect for tight walk-in coolers and other small spaces.
The LCD display monitor attaches to the platform with a long extension cable that can optionally be mounted while the scale is being used.
The BC2000 keg scale can be powered by its AC adapter or optionally three "C" batteries making it easily moved from one keg to the next.
The BC2000 small keg scale is recommended for smaller keg sizes and/or keg inventories that have a minimal number of half barrel kegs.
What is the BC2000 keg weigh scale?
The BC2000 small keg inventory scale is a rugged, sturdy, and durable draft beer keg weighing machine. The small BC2000 keg scale is designed to be used for kegs that are located in tight walk-in coolers with limited floor space and/or keg inventories that consist of mainly smaller keg sizes like 5 - 7 gallons. But don't let the small size fool you, the small keg scale has a 440 pound weight capacity and can easily weigh up to a half barrel kegs just like the large keg scale. The difference when weighing a half barrel keg with the small keg scale, is that the half barrel keg cannot be placed flat on the scale when weighing. Instead the bottom rim is placed in the middle of the scale and the keg is balanced upright for approximately a second while the weight is recorded. This makes weighing half barrel kegs with the small base a little more challenging, yet easily doable.

Can the small base keg scale weigh half barrel keg sizes?
Yes, although it has a small base and better suited for quarter barrel kegs and smaller, the small base keg scale can easily handle the weight of a half barrel keg. To weigh a half barrel keg, you would just rest the bottom rim of the keg in the middle of the scale and balance the keg for a second until the weight is recorded. A half barrel keg is too large to sit flat on the base.
Why should I weigh my tapped beer kegs?
Weighing your tapped beer kegs allows you to track your usage and losses much closer than taking inventory by shaking & guessing.
What's the difference in weighing kegs & the shake/guess method?
Using a shake and guess for beer keg inventory control is an outdated method. Although you can still use this method to count your inventory, the margin of error is very high and an accurate inventory will never be taken. The margin of error of using the shake and guess method is usually around 15 percent. Weighing your tapped kegs, will bring your inventory down to a 2 percent margin of error. That can be the difference in tracking the loss of 00's in retail profits each week due to theft, over-pouring, etc.
How easy is it to use the beer keg scale?
Our BC2000 keg scale is very easy to use. Just turn it on, rest the edge of a tapped keg onto the heavy duty platform and record the total weight. Enter the weight into the Bar Cop inventory control software and let it do the rest.
How do I know how much beer is in the keg after weighing?
Once the weights are entered into our inventory software, it performs all of the calculations for you.
Can I use the scale to monitor a keg continuously?
No. You should never leave the scale in a cold climate at all times. Scales are not made to withstand the cold temperature of a beer cooler for extended periods of time. This can damage the scales accuracy. You should only weigh your kegs at the end of each inventory period and then store the scale in a room temperature climate until the next time to weigh.
Can I use the scale for other purposes?
Yes. The scale is great for heavy weighing kitchen purposes also. However, it is not calibrated low enough to accurately weigh light products like liquor bottles in ounces.
