When they swell from the liquid being in them, they will form small cracks. If you prefer a barrel with no cracks, please check out our new barrels.

Used Honey Whiskey Barrel - 5 Gallon

Used Honey Whiskey Barrel – 5 Gallon via Austin Homebrew Supply

From Austin Homebrew Supply: “Age your next batch in some serious style with this Used 5 Gallon Honey Whiskey Barrel! This barrel will add a professional level of depth and complexity to your next batch. The barrels come from a local distillery in Waco, TX. They were first used for blue corn whiskey then they were used to age a local honey from Round Rock, TX. These barrels will impart both robust honey and whiskey flavors. In addition these barrels are fully sealed with local bees wax that was melted and painted on the barrel to seal in all moisture and flavors into the barrel.  This is a once in a lifetime barrel aging opportunity that you don’t want to miss.”

As of this posting Austin Homebrew Supply has this marked down a whopping $60 to $79.99.  In the current used 5 gallon barrel market, in my opinion, this is a bargain.  Austin Homebrew Supply is calling their supply extremely limited…  Check product page for current price and availability.

Used Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Staves – $3.99 – barrel flavor, without the barrel

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.

The Last Balcones Barrels

From William’s Brewing: “We have just received the last of the Balcones Drained Whiskey Barrels in 5 gallon size. These contained their Rumble Rum Blend from up until 2016, and then their Malt Whiskey from 2016 on, until being dumped on Monday, December 3rd, 2018.  Make your own Whiskey Barrel Stout or Whiskey Barrel Porter. Now in stock for a limited time”

I read this as these are the last 5 gallon Balcones barrels ever.  I had heard they were going to discontinue using this very popular size (from a  homebrewers perspective) a while back but had been hoping the information was wrong.

From a tip I received in late 2016…. “Balcones is stepping up to full size barrels , so these smaller 5 gallon barrels will be going away next year”

They’ve appeared on Homebrew Finds many times over the years from various retailers and have been insanely popular.  If you’ve been considering one of these, now’s the time.
