Bourbon Barrels
Anyone have a contact for a quantity of bourbon barrels for a serious beer brewer? Have closed large trailer and will haul load. Thinking 30-40 to make it worthwhile.

Check out Finger Lakes Distilling. They sell 10 gallon barrels.

Wish they shipped. 91 a piece.

Yeah, it was $60 each shipping to me. Trying to convince a friend who's from that way to being two down for me on his next trip. :-)

I will be coming to Philly two days after Christmas. How many do you want?

We are in Ontario, Canada and have our own large cargo van that should hold 40-50 depending on size. Let me know what you have. Interested in larger barrels for a brew pub. Want wet barrels. Spring run best for us as snow expected soon.

I would definitly buy one. The ten gallon volume. I could meet in philly. As long as long as its a wet bourbon barrel i would realy appreciate it. Are you affiliated with finger lakes?

No. The owner is a friend and I have used two of his barrels before for aging stouts. The barrels are wet and there is some choice in variety. He uses them for bourbon first and then a second aging of some type of brandy. He usually gives me a decent deal if he is in the distillery when I buy.

If any bourbon only barrels are available i would prefer that. I could experiment with a brandy barrel too. What would you want for your trouble?

oldbucket 12-04-2012 01:26 AM

Not really any trouble. I would suggest you pm your cell phone and I can let you know when I am going. I can call and let you know what the choices are when I am there and you can pick what you want. I plan to be in Philly area on Thursday and Friday after xmas.....might be staying in King of Prussia. I will be at airport Thursday during day and then I am going to find some microbrews in downtown Philly.
