  • anyone buy barrels from country connection?

    we recently just bought some barrels from country connection, received two barrels that didnt have bungs at all, one of which had some sort of water in the bottom (about a liter). the other barrels all had really cheap plastic dixie cup looking bungs in them. We had planned to fill them with a 12% Imperial Stout, Im thinking we are going to do a hot water soak in all of them for an hour or two (185 degrees), and maybe not even use the one that had standing water in it. any thoughts on this? is this standard operations for barrel brokers?

      No but I have always had good luck with Rocky Mountain Barrel, and John Gill "The Barrel Broker". John is very knowledgeable and always seems to have nice "wet" Bourbon barrels. Just got some nice Heaven Hills from him.
