- And, I don't know what all the fuss is about. I mean, let's face it,
you only need to expose air to the aging spirit in very small amounts
once a month or so (that should stir things up a bit!). I age my
spirits (deluted to 50%, not "rocket fuel") in 600 ml glass jars.
Once a month, I open the jars and leave the lids off for an hour.
Then I put the lids back on and give them a good shake. That should
do the trick. There is debate on whether aging spirit draws air thru
the staves of a barrel due to contraction of the spirit in the cold
weather, the barrel shrinks, also. I am of the thought that it does,
but that is niether here nor there. Research has shown that air
permeates the staves and in that way exposes spirit to air. Either
way, it is a small amount.
