Filling Wooden Kegs in 1955
A variety of keg sizes were filled, including a pin (4.5 gallons), a firkin (9 gallons), a kilderkin (18 gallons), a hogshead (54 gallons) and a Butt (108 gallons). “Barrels” were also used (36 gallons) before the introduction of metric measurement. Volumes are now measured in hectolitres (100 litres, approximately 22 gallons).
