    Re: I got a free barrel!

    Any chance I could "sweat" the inside of the barrel by throwing it in a large cooler?

    I would make my own solera out of it. Fill it up with whiskey and refill as the level gets low.

    You don't need to fill the barrel - 20% to 30% full will age the juice fine. Work up a vatting of inexpensive juice and put it in. If you have a few sipping buds then get everyone to put in a few handles. Everyone gets together every six months or so for a tasting and party.
