Steps To Preserve Your Oak Barrel
Gates Legault — Sudbury, Ontario asks,
Good day! I was not able to find how to preserve an oak barrel after its use. I have done four wine batches in it and now I feel that it’s not giving me the same effect as for taste. I would like to save the barrel and place it in my wine cellar, just do not want it to crack. Anything you can suggest?
