5 Gallon Bourbon Barrel Aging Time
1 Attachment(s)

Hi, 2 days ago I racked a 10% Imperial Oatmeal Stout into my 5 gallon oak barrel that's been holding Makers Mark in it for a few months. I poured out the remaining bourbon and transferred the beer right in there, purged the head space, and shoved in an airlock.

My question is.... how long has anyone aged in a barrel this size for circumstances similar to these and what were the results? I aged an Oatmeal Stout in here last time for 6 days and it was really good but I think it needed sone more time. Just wondering what some thoughts are. Thanks!
