Default barrels

so some time ago i found a great sight on the web selling used barrels out of newyork.

It started with t. I booked marked it. Fast forward 4 months and my hard drive took a crap.

They sold 15, 30, and standard used spirit barrels.

Any ideas?
I cant find them on google now.

Be aware that smaller barrels have a lot more oxygen exchange than bigger ones, due to a much higher surface area to volume ratio; be careful doing long aging in them.

My first barrel took a good 3 months to get a good layer of brett on top. That was in a 15 gallon barrel. How long would you say is too long?

I have read Wild Brews about the O2 exchange.
Any one have any exp with small barrel aging?

anyone?
oldsock?
ryane?

you guys are my go to guys.

30-60 is way too much for me to brew on my current 5 gallon system.

even if i was on a 10 gallon that seems epic.
