this is true, but it needs to be maintained (once every 6 weeks) and comes with its own risks (sulphrous acid if wet, bad fumes). it's possible it may need to be re-swelled after as well.

with a hammer tap the sides of the bung, one side is beveled than the other and it will come a little loose, then pull it out by hand...
opening it up and smelling the inside of the barrel was amazing!

Thanks a lot. This did the trick. Never thought I'd have such problems with my bung hole! Yes, the smell inside the barrel was amazing. It's gonna be hard to wait to drink this beer!

Your so dirty, LOL!

I sent you an email last night, I'm glad someone on here helped you with your bung hole!


FYI, there will be a new batch of barrels in July; I will take prepayment starting July 1st. I was told there would be 20 so get your beers a brewin' and let me know if you want one of these.

I also discussed the possibility of an all barrel comp in the fall with the owner of Old Sugar. He was in, so we will try to work on that and will let you guys know when it is. We are inviting those of you who have purchased Old Sugar barrels, sorry other guys.

Cheers,

John

I'm more interested in using this for wild beers with very little character imparted from the actual barrel itself, but I guess making some rum/oak beers until those flavors fade won't kill me

Though... this may sound like sacrilege to some, but is there a way to hasten the removal of rum and oak character so I don't have to wait so long?

Please re-add me to the barrel list. I should have enough allowance saved up for one by then.
