Barrel Temperature


Recommended Posts

We have space where we can store barrels but the temperature will remain fairly constant year round. The temperature never really drops below 50F and never goes above 65F or so. Ideally, we'd have bigger swings but I was wondering if this would work for barrel storage. We typically use a mix of 15G and 25G barrels. IS this going to significantly increase the aging time?

I do the same right now, using 15-gallon medium char barrels. We are finding the bourbon continues to improve and we are at 16+ months on the oldest one. I know many release 15-gallon barrels around the 12-month mark so there could be something to it. However a few extra months in the big picture shouldn't force you to look elsewhere - that space should work fine!
