Hi everyone,

I’m brewing with 2 fermentation buckets at about 25 litres each, and have bought a 120 litre whiskey barrel. I’m wondering if I can ferment them to 1.0 and from there add them to the barrel, then a week or two later ferment another 50 litres total and add that to the barrel, or would I be likely to encounter problems and be best fermenting straight in the barrel 120L?


Thanks for any help!

I've only used a much smaller barrel & filled it all at once.

Cheers & Good luck [emoji111]
