Don’t pass up these 5 Gallon Fresh Bourbon Distillery Bourbon Barrels if you’re a homebrewer looking to get started barrel-aging beer, cider, mead or other beverages.

At 5 gallons, these are the perfect starter size for barrel-aged homebrews.

The barrels, from Fresh Bourbon in Lexington, Kentucky, aged bourbon for one year before they were freshly emptied and sent to us after only one use.

The bourbon flavor locked deep inside the oak staves is both sweet and complex, with a depth even the pro craft brewers would appreciate. 

Expect to pull notes of vanilla, brown sugar, oak smoke and nuttiness. 

Mash Bill
- 60% corn
- 20% honey malt
- 10% malted wheat
- 10% malted rye
