    • Curing Your Barrel Before First Use:
      • First rinse the inside of the barrel by filling and emptying 2 or 3 times to remove any wood debris
      • Prior to use, your barrel must be filled with water for approximately 3 to 5 days
      • This will allow the oak to expand and retain liquid. (The barrel may leak until cured.)
      • After this initial curing period, place the barrel on the holder in a dry area
      • Liquid will continue to slowly drain through the wood for the following 3 to 7 days
      • Keep the barrel filled during this time
      • When the barrel stops draining, empty the contents and rinse again
      • You are now ready to fill your barrel for use

    How does this work with dispensing soft drinks (I.e. Root beer, cream soda)? Does it alter the flavor?
    Seth S on Jan 30, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: Yes, because this barrel is made from American White Oak with a medium toast charred interior, it will alter the flavor of your soft drink to some degree. The barrel is purposely made with a paraffin wax-free interior for aging spirits, wine, beer, and cocktails. So the barrel will impart flavors of the white oak and char onto the soft drink. The degree in which the flavor profile of the soft drink is changed will really depend on how long it is left to sit inside the barrel before dispensing.
