10 Gallon Used Whiskey Barrels with Cracked Staves – $125

img_3235

Smaller (5 to 10 gallon) used whiskey barrels can be tough to come by.  Adventures in Homebrewing has used 10 gallon whiskey barrels (with cracked staves) from Sons of Liberty Distillery.  They still hold liquid (see the description) and this saves you $25 vs the standard offering (which is and has been out of stock).

Description: These barrels have slight imperfections and/or minor cracks in some of the staves. These still will hold liquid and are in good condition otherwise. May need to be swelled prior to use to ensure it is liquid tight.

These barrels come from Sons of Liberty Spirits Company, an award winning craft distillery located in Rhode Island. This innovative distillery specializes in American Single Malt Whiskies born from distinctly flavorful beers.  These once filled charred oak whiskey barrels will impart whiskey taste and aroma, and improve the depth of flavor and complexity of your next beer.

Cornelius Fermenter Lids – $9.99

99-2029(1)

This Cornelius Keg Fermenter Lid is on sale for $9.99.  It has a 3/4″ Hole that’s designed to accommodate a #3 drilled stopper (included) and airlock (also included).  That allows you use a Cornelius Keg as a fermenter.  Use a 5 gallon keg as a secondary for a 5 gallon batch, use a 5 gallon keg as a primary fermenter for smaller batches or use a 10 gallon Cornelius Keg as a fermenter for 5 gallon+ batches.

I have two 10 gallon kegs that I use as primaries.  This allows you to do quite a few things including, easily transfer under pressure, ferment under pressure, carbonate in the primary fermenter and carbonate and serve from the primary (with a cut off dip tube).
