OAK BARRELS1 product
These barrels are hand crafted In Europe from European grown sessile oak.
Taps are not included with these barrels as there is a risk of oxidation and leaking around the tap. If you would like to install a tap we do have a selection suitable.
A stand is supplied.
Perfectly suited to fermenting or ageing beer or wine, and also Spirit maturation.
New barrels will impart a lot of oak flavor and aroma with the first use so be sure to taste regularly. Topping up regularly will also reduce risk of oxidation.
Sour Beer Fermentation:
We recommend putting a few clean beers through first to reduce the oak flavor. Suited perfectly to Imperial Stouts, Barley wines and other strongly flavoured ales followed by Belgian, British or US style ales.
