Just an update to an old thread on this. I aged by Wheat Wine in it 3 weeks, tasting once or twice a week and once the flavor was where I wanted it I racked it out to a keg.

That beer just won Best Of Show at the Colorado State Fair !

Nice.  There's not much better than a best of show.

Awesome!!  Was this the first run through the barrel?  I have one at home that I need to fill more often it looks like ;D

snowtiger87:
Yep. It was the first run in the barrel.

I have since "re-whiskyed" it and now I have my American Stock Ale (30% corn + 2 lbs of brown sugar) aging in it. It is a much drier beer than the Wheat Wine but I tasted last night and its coming along pleasantly.

jjflash:
What was your method to "re-whiskyed" the barrel?
