Caring for your Barrel Tips:

What to Know:

  • Your barrel won't require much maintenance if you follow key steps prior to use. All barrels will leak if not properly taken care of.
  • Ensure that your barrel is always topped up and not left empty. Leaving your barrel empty can cause the wood to dry and contract resulting in small passages for the liquid to leak from.
  • When your barrel arrives it is important to fill it to the top with water and allow the wood to swell back up. Follow this step if your barrel has been stored for a long period of time as well.
  • Replace the water every day for 3 days, if the barrel has no signs of leaks after this then you are fine to fill it with your desired drink.
What to do if you have a leak?:
  • If your barrel is leaking and it has been slightly empty for an extended period of time, then you need to empty your barrel into a storage device and proceed with re-hydrating of the barrel.
  • To do this fill the barrel with water, replacing every day for 5 days. This will cause the wood to swell back up. Please Note: If your barrel is leaking topping it up with your drink will not stop the leaks.
  • If after 5 days the leak is still not fixed then you will need to submerge the entire barrel into water and weigh it down to ensure that it is fully underwater. Please Note: All barrels are leak tested during production. If the barrel you receive is cracked then it would have been damaged during transport.
  • If after submerging your barrel in water and it is still leaking when full then you may need to use Bees wax or candle wax along with a hair dryer over the leaking area. The hair dryer heats up the wax and causes it to seep into the wood grain.
