    Barrels Preparation and Maintenance Guide

    Care of New Barrel
    Brand new barrels are about as sanitary as they can be as the wood has been heated over direct fire in the process of making the barrel.  This is done in order to bend the staves into place and to enhance various flavour accents.

    How to seal the barrel
    Like any wooden container, a new barrel must be filled with water so the oak can swell and eliminate leaks.  These leaks often seal themselves in only a few hours to a couple of days depending on how dry the barrel is. To ensure that the leak stops the barrel must be kept full until it stops. Using fresh water or filtered water free of chlorine is always preferred when doing this.

    If the leak persists you can seal them by applying the barrel wax we supply with every keg and placing the wax over the areas that leak, then using a hair dryer to melt the wax so it can work its way into the leak to block it up.  The oak must be dry in order for the wax to adhere and seal the barrel.  Never place wax on the inside of the barrel as it will spoil the contents of the barrel

    How to prepare for use
    Fill the barrel with hot water, rotate it and empty until the colour of the water comes out transparent. Bits of loose charred wood may come out during this process. Let the barrel sit to dry then it is ready for use.

    How to age wines and liquors
    To age wines or liquors, simply fill the barrel with your favourite product and store in a humid place where it is not exposed to sunlight or heat.  The time required depends on your choice and taste. Ageing wine or liquor in a barrel has the effect of transmitting the taste of the wood to your product inside the barrel.  The longer you store a wine or liquor the stronger the oak taste that you will get from the wood and also the darker the colour will become.
