New barrels need to be treated in the following way: Fill the barrel with a solution of Barokleen mixed to a strength of 1 pound to 5 gallons of hot water and leave for at least 48 hours. Drain the barrel and flush it with clean water until water runs clear from the barrel. Mix a solution of 2 ounces of sodium metabisulphite and 1 ounce of citric acid in 2 gallons of warm water. Pour this solution in the barrel and roll it around so it comes in contact with all interior surfaces of the barrel. Drain the sulphite solution, rinse the barrel well and fill with wine. No barrels are warranted. Barrels are made of wood which is a natural product and therefore cannot be warranted for leakage or other defects. If a problem does arise we will do our best to resolve it.
