Re: [new_distillers] Any old port..............
- Make a planter box out of it. I wouldn't want to store anything in any
barrel that has turned. Once vinegar has set into the wood it will
contaminate any thing else you put in there. I have many great herb
gardens in sold barrels. Grow the kind you can use for Gin. Good luck

Subject: [new_distillers] Any old port..............
I have come into possesion of an old 12 litre oak port barrel that
accumulated a glutinous coating of black gunk inside. I have been
flushing it out with water for a month, even stuck the pressure
cleaner inside but have been so far unable to remove the smell or
having the water turn the colour of ther Derwent River.
Any suggestions for cleaning would be appreciated and if it works
could pass on the treatment to land care.
