Thanks for the feedback everyone. We pushed a sale price out at $89 and dropped shipping to a flat $25. Hope this helps for those looking for barrels. Let me say the profit on these barrels for us is very minimal after freight from the distillery, shipping/packing supplies, etc.

i live in round rock, texas and have been uable to find a water report that lists the appropriate info.  what are some keywords i should use when googling.  ive asked a local brewer and some club members and no one knows.  thanks.

Did you post to the Texas Carboys or Austin Zealots? I've posted info out to the Zealots Yahoo group a few times.

You should receive the annual drinking water quality report by July 1, the City hasn't posted online as of yet -- the one available at (search for "City of Round Rock" or TX2460003) does not include the secondaries that you would want for sulfate/hardness/calcium etc. pH usually ranges from 7.3 - 7.6, raw water alkalinity is ~155.

Chloramine levels depend on how far you live from the water treatment/pump stations, but be aware that with historical levels in distribution minimum of 2.15 mg/L (measured as total chlorine) and levels above 3 mg/L out of the treatment plant that you need to dechloraminate. Carbon filtration may not remove all if you don't have sufficient contact time to hit a removal efficiency that you need.

Assuming that Kim Lutz is still handling the water quality data for Round Rock, you can call her at (512) 341-3333 or email for more recent data.

You can also get your water tested by LCRA Environmental Services in southeast Austin, they have a residential water supply testing services

just saw this, thanks for all the great info.

ditto... great info for Austinites and Round Rockians
