The craftsmanship of the barrel is outstanding. It is tight and has a normal shape that is compatible with regular barrel stands. It arrived in perfect condition by UPS. So, it is able to be tracked during shipment. The Midwest service and product exceeds those of other companies we have used.
It's filled with a big batch of Imperial stout, aging away. After it's oaked I'm going to age it in carboys, to free it up for a double IPA. My friends are envious and I plan on letting them use it as well because I wont need 180 gallons of oaked beer a year.
This was perfect for our club. Its a huge barrel and perfect for our Lambic project. 6 of us bought the barrel and each contributed 5 gallons. We are making a group Lambic. Every once in a while we add some additional wort, to fill up any air space. Starting at 9 months we will draw off 5 gallons, and replaced it. This way we get to taste it and judge it's maturation.
I bought one 30 and two 5 gallon barrels for wine making. These barrels are very well built and extremely oakey. _x000D__x000D_The 30 Gallon barrel has been filled with Cabernet Sauvignon for about two months and is already really good.
