Ends Today: 2 Liter Barrel from William’s Brewing on sale for $39.99

3l barrel3 liter American Oak Barrels via William’s Brewing.

About: “When you distill a spirit, it invariably comes out clear as water. Put the clear spirit in contact with charred American oak, and it turns amber and mellow with toasted wood vanilla-like richness. Want to speed up the aging process? These new American Oak Barrels are charred on the inside (Char Level 3) for Whiskey, Bourbon, and Tequila aging. The small surface area compared with commercial 53 gallon barrels means these will age spirits much quicker than larger barrels. Handmade in Mexico following centuries old cooperage methods; the valve is wood and sealed with leather, and the top plug is wood and sealed with a wrap of leather. No plastic, rubber, or glue are used in construction.

Compared with a commercial 53 gallon oak barrel, this Two Liter Barrel will age spirits the equivalent of one year in just 13 weeks. Two liters is the equivalent of 2 2/3 750ml bottles, and contains 67 one ounce shots. 8” tall with bung and 7½ long.

BARRELS ARE IMPERFECT AND REQUIRE MAINTENANCE – These are wood barrels, and will initially leak unless first filled with water for 14 days so the staves can swell and seal. This may cause minor staining on the barrels and the included wood stands. They must be filled with water within 20 days of receiving or they will dry out and become unsealable, and cannot be left dry for long periods.

Dual purpose: Once you mature your whiskey you know have a used whiskey barrel you can use to age a barrel stout or other homebrew.

As of this posting, this on sale for $39.99.  Check William’s Brewing for current price and availability.

Quick Sell Out Risk: Recently William’s had a sale on their 3 gallon barrel and it sold out very quickly.  I have no idea what kind of stock they have on hand of the 2 liter barrel.  Just alerting you that there have been stock issues with barrels in the past.

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.
