Well, at around 8 lbs. a gallon, with 250 gallons at your house, I would definitely say you have at *least* a ton.

You know, I never thought of it like that before. Makes me think I had best reinforce the shelf that I keep the fermenters on!!

Water actually weighs more like 10 lbs a gallon. I was estimating alchohol weighing less, but most beer is primarily water. Gasoline, iirc, weghs closer to 8 lbs. a gallon. Given 10 lbs. a gallon, you're looking at 2500 lbs, not including the carboy.

I like light beer, but really prefer white wine, preferably Pino Grigio.
