Default For Sale - Odell's (Makers Mark) Bourbon Barrel Stout Barrels

FYI - Fort Collins, CO. Odell's is selling a bunch of used Makers Mark barrels they used to make their Bourbon Barrel Stout. $50, seems like there is plenty still available. Pick up on-site during tap-room hours.

Would have gotten one, but the wife said no.

Any ideas on how to properly sanitize them? I think our brew club has some and have discussed possibly aging a group brew in one.

Campden tablets are typically used to sanitize barrels... then throw some whiskey in until you're ready to use them.

It is my understanding that barrels need to be stored wet on the inside. If they are allowed to dry out, they shrink and then they leak.

They are 225 liter barrels... a little over 59 gallons.

Umm I would think it would only take 1 person to fill it. I doubt you could fit two people in a 59 gallon barrel

Hey dr-

If you can't find enough guys in the Springs to help you fill it, let me know the recipe and I will contribute 5-10 gallons....assuming I get it back after proper aging!
