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!

NO SPECIFIC REASON FOR THIS LINK...
I just really like the work levifunk is doing!

Buy a steamer wand for cleaning. Before we went sour on our barrels, we would pour several gallons of recently boiled water into the barrel, then roll it back and forth on 2x4's to get all the trub out. Then we steamed it for about 30 mins. Worked well.

I would maybe soak it for a few days with a 1% kmeta solution with some citric acid to activate it to SO2.

How long has it been empty? Did they burn a stick of sulfur when they emptied it? Bad stuff can start growing quickly when a barrel is empty.
