I also own a bourbon barrel from Tuthilltown, and just filled it for the first time last week.

3gal of quad in the barrel and 1 gal in a growler

I have never used a barrel before, and was surprised by the rate of absorption/evaporation.

How long do you think your beer will be in the barrel for? I dont have an idea of how long my beer will be in the barrel for, I just plan on tasting it and bottling when I feel it is ready.

I make beer way faster than I drink it...

Can you pass on what the distiller told you about sanitizing? I visited them a few weeks ago. Great place.

I've got a 3gl on route to my place right now and an IIPA waiting to go in it when it arrives.
