Used Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Staves – $3.99

Sliced Bourbon Barrel Staves 2 ct.

Used Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Staves via Adventures in Homebrewing.

Used whiskey barrels are popular… really popular.  5 and 10 gallon barrels usually sell out quickly when they become available.  They are also typically relatively expensive.  These are a great way to get some of the barrel experience without the cost and space required for a barrel.

from AIH…”These sliced staves do vary in size. They are anywhere from 1/2”- 1″ wide, 1/8″-1/4″ thick and 8-13″ in length. Please keep this in mind when purchasing. Many commercial chips have allowed moisture (bourbon) to dry up. This is not the case with these sliced staves. These staves have been processed from authentic Kentucky bourbon barrels.”

As of this posting, these are available for $3.99.  Check the product page for up to the minute price and availability.
