Have you ever wanted to make a true whiskey barrel stout, or an oak aged barleywine? We now have 5 gallon American Oak fresh drained whiskey barrels from a leading craft distillery. These impart a deep whisky/bourbon-oak flavor and are perfect for aging your strong ales, and also ideal for sour ales. These are once used barrels which have stored Balcone's premium blue corn craft whiskey and bourbon for at least 1 year before being drained. Wood stands are included.

IMPORTANT NOTICE:  Note that wood barrels are imperfect, and may leak when initially filled, particularly if they are not filled within two weeks of receiving. We do not guarantee against leakage, but leaking barrels can be repaired by rehydration or wood plugs, check YouTube for instructional videos. Always fill a barrel with water and leave for 24 hours before use to check for leaks.

Roughly what size are the 5-gallon barrels? Height? Middle width (diameter)? Top/bottom width (diameter)? Thank you!
Height is 14", and 16" on the stand.  Middle width is 12" and they are 16" long.

Any idea on the level of charring on the inside?
Medium toast

Can the flavor be "re-charged" if you were to say add a bottle of whiskey to it and re-coat it?
At least partially, yes, although this will not be as intense as having 5 gallons of whiskey soaking all the wood.
