Storing & Maintaining Your Barrel

You will need the following items for cleaning and ensuring your barrel has a long lifetime:

  • Neutralising Acid (Citric Acid Powder)

To clean your oak barrel, follow these simple steps:

  • Fill the barrel with a cleaning and sterilising solution and warm water, this will also help to hydrate your barrel and prevent slow leaks from forming

We also recommend 3/4 filling your barrel with a sterilised solution every month when it is not actively being used.
