Welcome to the homeBBBrew board!
Like the BBB, the homeBBBrew board is not a club, just a place to talk about making beer. Is there a swap you would like to see happen? If we can find a few others who have something similar then lets do it!

I just really like the work levifunk is doing!

Try WWW dot kentuckybarrels dot com. A 53 gal barrel will cost about $60, plus another $60 to ship.

Best of luck

Nina, check with Jason at keystonehomebrew dot com, which is HB store in Montgomeryville PA (north of philly). Keystone does some barrel brews as a club and my club got one of our barrels from KS.

Thanks all! We're rolling out to Stoudt's Brewing this weekend and will be passing the Philly area. Might have to stop by Keystone Brewing. AlB - we'd better bring the truck in the event we tote home a new beer barrel!

I'd love to ge tmy hands on a bourbon barrel, but then there's the challenge of filling that big boy on the homebrew scale. Would take some collaboration for sure. On a smaller scale, I've had pretty good results with bourbon barrel chips/char. I've gotten some really good stuff from Heaven Hill Distillery, ordered via the net.

Yeah, I've done for a stoudt. Not bad.

I'd like try a small barrel though. I'd have to add a spirit or wine or something + age, then brew.

If you ever get down to a bourbon distillery - the aromas of their warehouses is amazing. So much bourbon "fumes" goes through the barrel AND the building! A black harmless mold often grows on the outside of the building - looks like someone tried to set the place on fire. Really prevalent in the Summer months.

I got my 53 gallon Bourbon barrels (Wild Turkey) from Kelvin Cooperage in Louisville, KY for $45.00 each. I picked them up at the cooperage. Web site is www.kelvincooperage.com, or you can call them at (502)366-5757. If you are paying $90.00! for a Bourbon barrel that does not include shipping you are paying too much.
