Made from the finest American White Oak. Why OAK?
Oak adds a nutty, buttery flavor and additional tannins to the ferment. The tannins will be exhausted over the years. Each year the beneficial probiotic bacteria and yeasts impregnate the wood, over time each cask develops a unique character of health and flavor. Used properly will last more than a life time. In our own tests using Silver Needle White Tea kombucha fermented in oak produced a smoother deeper flavor - very fine. It did reduce the overall gluconic acid when compared to Silver Needle White tea in a more traditional glass container. However it should be noted that overall Silver Needle White Tea fermented in a Oak Cask still produced far greater gluconic acid level than kombucha tea made with a black, green or combination of black and green tea fermented in glass. With our American White Oaks casks you can produce a fine ferment beverage rich in both taste and benefits.
NOTE: We guarantee our barrels against initial leakage and damage. The barrel is expected to swell and not to leak upon following the directions above. Damage after is not warranted. The TOP, has been cut open. This does not affect the integrity of the barrel, but may cause wrapping and create an uneven surface. We do not guarantee against this type of wrapping. The pieces themselves may be removed. Such removal will not violate the integrity of the barrel. The barrels may discolor, become black on the outside. This is normal. Thee is a food-grade varnish that may be used to prevent this. However we have found the majority of our clients prefer all natural and do not want any ingredients leaking into their brew. The barrel should be filled and maintained at 75-80% level.
Note 2: the interior of the barrel should ALWAYS be moist and should not be allowed to dry out. A dried out barrel will leak. If you decide not to use the barrel for awhile, fill with water, cover and set in a clean cool area. Add campden tablet (one per gallon) for storage, or add a few cups of vinegar. If possible maintain the water below a pH of 4.0.
If you decide to return your purchase - for any reason - you may do so within 90 days and as long as the product is returned in good condition we will refund your purchase price. We do not pay return shipping costs.
