Ok, a friend of mine gave me a wine barrel, and I want to use it to secondary some beer in and get some of the flavors from the sine and oak out of it.
Only problem is, it's 30 gallon barrel, and I can't/don't want to afford a 30 gallon batch of beer.
My question is.........Could I place a plastic bag with 15-20 gallons of water in the bag tied off just floating in the beer to fill the barrel? That way I get the best of both worlds. Flavor without having to make 30 gallons of one type of beer. Would the bag survive? (I think it would)
