  • Used barrel question about bung location

    Hi, I recently purchased 8 used 53 gallon whiskey barrels, 6 have end bungs and 2 have side bungs like a wine barrel. I would like to make them all side bungs for ease of storage and if we need to move them. Can I simply just drill into a stave on the side without any issues? Also will the bung on the end now hold pressure once the barrel is filled? should it be glued or should i just hammer in the bungs to seal it?

    Any advice or ideas would be greatly appreciated, Thanks!
