Where the quantity of spirits (including denatured spirits) in bulk is to be determined
by volume as authorized by this chapter, the measurement shall be made in tanks, by
meters as provided in 27 CFR part 19, or by other devices or methods authorized by the appropriate TTB officer, or as
otherwise provided in this chapter, or such measurement may be made in tank cars or
tank trucks if calibration charts for such conveyances are provided and such charts
have been accurately prepared, and certified as accurate, by engineers or other persons
qualified to calibrate such conveyances. Volumetric measurements in tanks shall be made only in accurately calibrated tanks
equipped with suitable measuring devices, whereby the actual contents can be correctly
ascertained. If the temperature of spirits (including denatured spirits) is other than the standard
of 60 degrees Fahrenheit, gallonage determined by volumetric measurements shall be
corrected to the standard temperature by means of table 7. In the case of denatured spirits, the temperature-correction factor for the proof
of the spirits used in denaturation will give sufficiently accurate results, except
that the temperature-correction factor used for specially denatured spirits, Formula
No. 18, should be that given in table 7 for 100 proof spirits. When the quantity of spirits, in wine gallons, has been determined by volumetric
measurement, the number of proof gallons shall be obtained by multiplying the wine
gallons by the proof of the spirits as determined under § 30.31.
