Hello everyone,
I have a brand new Vadai 13.2 gallon barrel and 9 lugs of Lanza Clone 8 Cabernet Sav that will be in need of some oak...

Had anyone had any experience running the 13.2? I'm wondering what I should be expecting for the length of my first run?

It won’t be a lot different than the 12 I’m using. IIRC, my first wine in was Lanza Clone 169, which stayed in a little over 2 months. I like plenty oak, so adjust based upon your taste, and remember that the oak falls back a bit as it ages in a bottle.

Sounds good john. Thank you.
