My HBC is getting a 53 gallon barrel and we're going to age an imperial stout. I tried a search but couldn't find much, maybe I wasn't using the right terms. Anybody have any pictures of things they've built to hold one of these oak barrels on its side? Or some tips? I'm thinking a sheet of 3/4" plywood and some 2x4's and see what happens.
I'm guessing the dimensions of the one I get are similiar or exact to this:
"These barrels will hold approximately 53 gallons of valuable rain water. They are 36'' tall, 21'' in diameter at the top and bottom, and 24'' in diameter in the middle. They weigh approximately 125 lbs empty, and are held together by 6 double riveted steel hoops."
