Nice Barrel
Have just filled this 10L barrel for its first aging job. It is a nice looking barrel and construction quality seems pretty good. Got a bit nervous when it still leaked after about 72 hours of conditioning with water, but it tightened up nicely by the fourth day and hasn't lost a single drop of its precious cargo since filling. The main reason for 4 stars not 5 is that it arrived with the wrong size bung and spigot, which I didn't discover until I was committed to the condition/fill sequence. Ack. This could have caused an even lower rating but AIH support responded very quickly to my SOS. I actually purchased two of these barrels and both had the wrong parts: surprisingly, one set was too big and the other too small. This appears to have been the manufacturer's fault, not AIH, but just let me raise the red flag so that if you buy one you check this immediately on acquisition - don't wait 'til you really need to use it like I did. The only other issue I have with this is that I was surprised to find that the barrel has an external varnish finish of some sort. This seems counter to what I think I know about the function(s) of barrel aging, but maybe I need more edification… Does make it look nicer than the uncoated 2L barrel I have from another maker. Also note that the metal hoops are NOT stainless or other corrosion resistant metal, so time will tell.
