What you might also like:
- Taps are not included. The stainless steel tap should be ordered separately and we will fit it to the barrel.
- We regularly steam our barrels slightly to prevent them from drying out too much. However, once we ship them we have no control over the barrel and cannot guarantee that they will be leak free. As such, our barrels are not guaranteed to be leak-free. The right conditioning will assist you in maintaining a leakfree barrel for many many years. Once filled, NEVER allow your barrel to dry out (especially during dry seasons).
Please read this article (especially the "how to care for your barrel") when buying a new barrel to ensure that it is conditioned and to be leak free.
