Can someone explain this to me? How can a 3 liter barrel age stuff faster than a 3 gallon carboy?

So if a wine normally takes a year to age, it would be just as aged after just 3?

Do smaller barrels age the spirit faster than large barrels?
Yes... due to the greater surface or contact area ratio, small size barrels will age 5 to 10 times faster then your standard 55 gallon barrel. These means that one month in a small barrel will produce the equivalent aging to 1 to 1 1/2 years in a full size barrel.
It's on their FAQ page....

I was just gifted one of these for my b-day and definitely excited to try it out. I've got an e-mail inquiry in to 1000 oaks about making a cask ale with it. I'll keep you all informed if they respond.

They said while typically you'd carbonate after the barrel aging, you could potentially make a cask ale. I didn't get the vibe he was 100% certain of this, so I would definitely keep the volumes of CO2 restrained (1.0-1.5 range).

Those half liter and one liter mugs look really cool, too.
