Default Oak Barrels

Has anyone bought a new oak barrel? I am considering buying one to age some beer in. I was thinking the 10 liter would be large enough to age half a batch.

Who did you order from our you happy etc.....

I found this thread trying to find an answer to the same question. I found this website but I know nothing about them. Anyone ever tried them?

head over to this thread. updated quite often when he gets new (used) barrels in.

i haven't gone the barrel route yet on oak aging (i am using cubes currently), but i keep my eye on the farmhouse thread in the hopes i will get off my butt and get one. i think the added flavor of a used barrel (previous liquid in said barrel) plus the fact that the previous liquid has lessened the oak effect (over a new barrel) is a double win.

ahhhh, someday,
(guess what i will be counting, instead of sheep, to get to sleep tonight)
