More Info

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

Do you own a Robobrew, Digiboil, or Grainfather and want to get into making your own whiskey, bourbon, rum, or cognac? We have the perfect package that includes everything you need except a Robobrew, Digiboil, or Grainfather and ingredients to get into distilling your own whiskey, bourbon, cognac, rum. This is a Pot Still package, which means the simple pure copper condenser included does not strip all the flavor out of the mash, required for true bourbon, whiskey, cognac, and rum. This is not the best setup for Vodka, Gin, or other clear spirits, as it leaves too much flavor in the final product.

Includes a Kegland Pot Distilling Arm, 15′ of water cooling tubing with a female hose connection to attach to your cooling water source, Robobrew and Grainfather distilling lid, Hydrometer Jar, Alcometer Hydrometer, and complete instructions. Regularly $174.00 if purchased separately, this package saves you $24.00 and makes sure you have everything you need. Please read the instructions below before ordering. Formerly item J47

• Make your own whiskey, bourbon, rum, or cognac
• All you need is a Robobrew or Grainfather and ingredients
• Save $24.00 over separate purchase prices

 

As of this posting, this package is selling for $164.99.  That’s a $24 savings vs purchasing these components separately.  Price, promotions and availability can change quickly.  Please note that product prices and availability are subject to change.

Drained 5 Gallon Whiskey/Bourbon Barrel

Drained 5 Gallon Whiskey/Bourbon Barrel

More Info

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

Have you ever wanted to make a true whiskey barrel stout, or an oak aged barleywine? We now have 5 gallon American Oak whiskey barrels from a leading craft distillery. These impart a deep whisky/bourbon-oak flavor and are perfect for aging your strong ales, and also ideal for sour ales. These are once used barrels which have stored premium craft whiskey or bourbon for at least 3 years before being drained.

These quality barrels were crafted in Minnesota by The Barrel Mill and have a Char level of 3. They come with either a wooden bung or a plastic bung, and also fit a #9 Stopper (not included) if you want to use these with an airlock (see at right).

These held Kings County Distilling Bourbon and Single Malt Whiskey, from 2014 to late February 2019 when they were dumped. They first held Bourbon for a couple years, then were dumped and refilled with Single Malt for another year or two. For more on the Kings County Distillery and their bourbon and whiskey, click HERE.

The pictured wood stand is optional, see a suitable stand at right.

NOTE: Pricing is for 1 barrel, three are shown to show you how they vary in appearance.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Note that wood barrels are imperfect, and may leak when initially filled, particularly if they are not filled within two weeks of receiving. We do not guarantee against leakage, but leaking barrels can be repaired by rehydration or wood plugs, check YouTube for instructional videos. Always fill a barrel with water and leave for 24 hours before use to check for leaks.
