I've been looking online for oak barrels for wine making. I've seen them range from about 175-300....My mom is big into wine making but she seems to have everything but an oak barrel, so i figure this would be a perfect present for her...Does anyone know the cheapest or best place to order one? Or places i should stay away from? I'm basically looking for a 5 gallon one since it would be her first time using one and it would get her familiar with it. She makes 6.5 gallon batches at a time. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Sorry. No good advise for you in regards to 5 galeon barrels. If you wanted a 50 galeon barrel you can sometimes get them for about $100 used at a disterery. Thats the extent of my knowalge. Good luck!
