Sale Extended: Used 5 Gallon Blue Corn Whiskey Barrels – $89 – Better than Black Friday

5 Gallon Whiskey Barrels from Balcones Distilling in Waco TX.  These barrels are aged with Award Winning Whiskey for a minimum of 6 months.  They are recently dumped and ready to be filled with your homebrew – consider a stout, porter, amber, brown or barleywine.  Made of American Oak.  Can be used multiple times for clean fermentation with proper care.  Comes with a stand and rubber bung.

More Info

We’ve featured 5, 10 and 15 gallon size kettles in the past.  Used barrels are popular.  This 5 gallon size seems to be the most popular.  It’s good size to fill and store.  Along those lines, availability of these barrels can be touch and go.

A free barrel brewing guide (in downloadable pdf format) is also available on the barrel page.  It is… An overview of barrel anatomy, wood types, first-use prep list, cleaning, storing, aging beer, fermenting and souring in oak barrels.


As of this posting, these are marked down to $89.  This is a flash sale that is set to end today.  For some pricing clarity this actually beats homebrewing-dot-com’s most recent Cyber Monday Sale price and their most recent (single barrel) Black Friday Sale price.  To match this price on the Black Friday sale, you would have had to buy three barrels.  It would have been possible to beat this price only if you had purchased four barrels.  At which point, your price per barrel would have been $1.51 less than this current flash sale.  All that to say that this is a great deal.  Check the product page for current price and availability.  Shipping is a flat $20 to most US addresses.

Update: This was set to expire a few days back, but has been extended.  No word on when it will end, but the product page is reading low stock.  Check the product page to see current price and availability.

Three Way Stainless Valve – $19.99, Save $20 at William’s Brewing

About, from William’s Brewing: “This stainless three way ball valve features three 1/2″ female BST ports, and is great for both switching flow directions, and for venting air out of a wort line using a March or Chugger pump. Red indicator arrows indicate flow (this is an L type 3 way and only two ports can be open at once), and the handle goes completely around, so any port can be selected or shut off. Be sure to use teflon tape to seal the threads.”

As of this posting, William’s has this marked down $20 to $19.99.  Check product page for up to the minute price and availability.
