My brother got me this 5L mini barrel for my birthday earlier this week. Got it sealed up and going to put this JW Dant in later today. Wanted something cheap and young but not 80 or 90 proof. From recommendations I decided against any new make or un-aged whiskey for the first run. I may go that route for the second batch after the first batch takes out some of the oak. Will check on it every two weeks or so.151037151038

Very nice. I almost got one at a trade show a while back to run my mead through. Might still get one, I kinda stopped brewing until I get a little better workspace.

Nice looking barre. This weekend I’m going to keg a saison that’s been sitting in a 25 gallon whiskey barrel souring for the past 12 months. Putting in a Braggot as soon as the Saison comes out.

Checked the level today and decided to top it back off. It took 150ml to top it back off. Also realized that I had 450ml left in the bottle and should have only had about 250ml left if it took the whole 5L so it’s about 4.8L. Took a little sample of what was in there before topping off. Not much change but seemed a little brighter.
