I don't know of this place. Doesn't mean it isn't valid. But direct sources of barrels I've sourced have been about $125-$130 each without shipping. Even the barrels we've sourced for Carson's, we had to specify that we were re-using them for brewing. Appearently many of the barrel resellers are assuming the barrels are being used as flower planters.
You gonna buy one, or be one?
.....I'm gonna be one!

25/30 gallon Plastic Storage Bins, $15 each on craigslist. Im thinking about getting some, they look like they would be pretty good for storing bulk grain.

Does anybody have any leads or connections on a bourbon barrel? I may be looking for a good one for a large batch

I think I might know where one is. Let me know if you would be interested in maybe splitting up the batch. I would be willing to go in the cost of the barrel and split up the brewing to fill the thing. What type of beer are thinking about making?
