    I know for a fact they are legit. I think AJ was referring to some of the other online barrel companies and there are a lot of scammers out there.

    Nice. I’ll have to look up Allary and check them out. Venturing into the barrel world gotta plan years in advance!
    I’m filling my 1st and only barrel back up tonight which I think may now be neutral. A 30L I got from Fred. Been filled about a year now. And also have a 50L from Fred on deck. Trying to plan it so the 1st run is done just as ‘20 spring wine can go in for long 8month+ stretch.
    Utilizing barrels just adds a whole new fun element to the mix. I love it.

    Fair enough, although I don’t think anyone has heard from him since 1895

    Oh. Yeah. My bad. Thanks Fred. I didn’t mean to insinuate this company was like that. Was 2 separate thoughts.
    But it definitely is crazy out there. For whatever reason scammers gravitate to the wine barrel market. So if ya find high quality oak in hard to find sizes at unbeatable prices- chances are they don’t exist or as @ibglowin put it before- could be coming from the glowing hills of the Chernobyl forest.

    Did you have to look that up or was it just common knowledge to you?

    Have you heard anything back? Assuming it’s medium toast I’m ready to buy now if it’s available.
