5 Gallon Used Whiskey Barrels
They look great and come with a stand!!

Barrel Dimensions: 
Approx. 12" dia. at the widest point of the barrel, 15.5" tall


From the distiller:

I'm a long-time home brewer and the head distiller at Balcones Distillery here in Texas . Hope this is cool to do this on the forum, but I wanted to make it known that we a greater than normal quantity of recently dumped 20 liter whiskey barrels available for sale. With this summer being as hot as it's been, I'd hate to see them dry out waiting for homes. These are great barrels for homebrewers not only because of their size, but because they come pretty much sterile and were leak free when they were dumped. Because they're used, you don't have to worry about over-oaking your beer like you would with a new barrel.

Anyway, if there is some interest, especially from home brew clubs or shops, we could figure out a way to find these barrels good homes. We try to ship them by the pallet (27-36 barrels / pallet) if we can since individual shipping takes so much time. We'll try to figure something out if folks out there are interested.

I received one of these barrels last year as a Christmas present from my children. Somehow one of the steel bands was lost. AIH went way beyond what I could have expected and found a band for me, sent detailed recovery instructions and the band at no charge. I just racked off the merlot I aged in the barrel and it is FANTASTIC. Went online to purchase more and missed this years supply. I will be keeping track in 2014. I need several more. - Reviewed by on 1/6/2014

Rating Quality is Awesome
 
I am very pleased with my latest purchase from Adventures in Homebrewing, the used 5 gallon Bourbon barrel is better than I expected the quality and appearance is awesome and all my family and friends love it too. I can''t wait to try the Strong Ale I brewed just for that barrel. Thanks for the great deal on this purchase. - Reviewed by on 10/15/2012

Just to let you know. My Wheat Wine that was aged in one of these barrels for 3 weeks won Best of Show in the Colorado State Fair! 475 entries. Cheers. - Reviewed by on 8/30/2012

Rating Very Impressed
 
I am very impressed with this barrel as was my brew partner. My girlfriend was enthralled with the aroma inside the cask. She wants our Bourbon Vanilla Imperial Porter to start the party. We may need a few more of these barrels. - Reviewed by on 7/27/2012

The ordering and shipping process was great for me with everything packaged nicely. The whiskey barrel works great with no leaks, just wish I would have bought a second one. - Reviewed by on 5/16/2012

Rating Quite Happy
 
Wow, this is how you run a business! When my barrel arrived, I didn''t yet have a suitable beer to age in it. So, I filled it with distilled water as a stopgap measure. The barrel didn''t leak, and was in good condition when I received it. I really like that you folks bundled it with the stand - it was very helpful. I am quite happy with my purchase, and will certainly order from you folks again. Thanks! - Reviewed by on 5/16/2012

Rating Barrel Smelled Great
 
I did get the barrel and I''m very excited to taste my first aged IPA in about a month. The barrel smelled great when I was filling it with the beer. Thank you so much. - Reviewed by on 5/16/2012
