Barrel Headspace


Recommended Posts

Keeping the barrel 75% full is advantageous over 100% full. I suspect the reasons for this are what you mentioned, an increased loss of spirit - which actually would help the spirit mellow - but I'm not certain myself. I know many french brandymakers insist on it.
