Get ‘Em While They Last…. Hard to Find Used 5 Gallon Whiskey Barrels – $99! – SEE UPDATE

Thanks to HBF Reader @edflor via Twitter for this tip!  [8 Ways to Connect with HBF]

Used 5 Gallon Whiskey Barrel

5 Gallon Used Whiskey Barrels from Adventures in Homebrewing


From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

Take your next brew to the next level with this Used 5 Gallon Whiskey Barrel! Hailing from an award-winning small-batch distillery, these oak barrels will add depth and complexity to your next batch.  No stand is included with this batch of barrels.

Used barrels may have cracked staves from their previous use. This is completely normal in a used barrel and does not compromise the integrity of the barrel. 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


  • Availability of used whiskey barrels in the 5 gallon size can be touch and go.  They are generally popular and sell out quickly.
  • Awesome Thing #1:  As of this posting these just back in stock.  I keep a close eye on these and they have been out of stock for weeks.
  • Awesome Thing #2:  Not only are they in stock, they’re on sale for $99.  That’s a $40.99 savings.
  • This is a great deal considering how tough these are to find.  I would suggest getting on this sooner rather than later, if you’re interested. 

UPDATE: And… sold out.  This sold out in a matter of a couple hours.  We’re keeping a close eye on this product.  Connect With HBF and we’ll let you know the next time these are available.

Check out Spike Brewing’s Bargain Cave – to see what’s available, remember… availability is limited


After well over a year of evaluating, I splurged recently and got a Spike Conical (the CF5). I’ve seen quite a few others going through this debate period, so I wanted to provide a hot take to help others in their own decision making process. So far I’ve assembled and prepped it for my first brews, but haven’t actually used it yet. Most of the points here will be about equipment quality/features rather than practice.

For context; I added on the temp control bundle with heater, leg extensions, casters, extended bracing shelf, and a few other nice to haves. So some of these will cover things that aren’t part of the “core” conical package.

Conical Fermenter for Homebrew/Wine/Brewing, Pro Grade Stainless Steel - 8 Gallon

Conical Fermenter for Homebrew/Wine/Brewing, Pro Grade Stainless Steel – 8 Gallon

More Info

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

Use the same equipment the pros use! This conical fermenter in stainless steel is exactly what you need if you are looking to take your fermentation game to the next level. They are made entirely of 304 stainless steel, including the valves, and all the gaskets are high temperature tolerant platinum cured silicone. The entire lid is removable and the inside is mirror polished, making this stainless steel fermentation tank very easy to clean and sterilize. The total capacity of this stainless steel fermenter is 8 gallons, so you will have plenty of head space for that wonderful foamy, bubbly fermentation action. On the bottom, there are two 1.5″ tri-clover ferrules for attaching the drain and racking valves (both included). On the top, there is one 1.5″ tri-clover ferrule for attaching an airlock or blow-off valve. There is a fourth 1.5″ tri-clamp connection on the side to make it easy to add a thermowell if desired. Also included are two 1.5″ tri-clover to 3/4″ hose barb connectors. As you can see in the pictures, one of them is straight and one of them is a 90-degree elbow. You can use these on whichever connectors you want, but they were intended to be attached to the racking valve (to minimize oxidation in your final product) and the vent port on top (for a blow-off tube). Included with this stainless steel fermenter: 2x stainless steel valves with 1.5″ tri-clover connectors on each side 1x 1.5″ tri-clover to 3/4″ hose-barb adapter plate 1x 1.5″ tri-clover to 3/4″ hose-barb 90 degree elbow adapter plate 5x 1.5″ tri-clover clamps and gaskets 1x 1.5″ plate for side port If you are looking for a larger version, please check out the 13 gallon version of this fermenter!
