Coopering products do not refer to those that are necessary in the daily conditions of life. Well, except if you pickle in barrels, or are involved in winemaking.
Oak barrels, of course, are necessary for those who have decided to share the works and to demonstrate success in winemaking.
Oak barrels with the volume of 50 liters are ideal for winemakers, restaurateurs or sale of red and white wines, homemade brandy, whiskey or rum, or maybe you just want to keep fresh homemade beer in them.
In addition to alcoholic drinks, in oak barrels with the volume of 50 liters, you are able to store alcoholic and low-alcoholic drinks.
Barrels of oak differ from plastic barrels not only in price but also in quality. For manufacturing of wooden barrels only high-quality materials are used – wood itself must be older than 60 years old, and the wood must not contain any cracks and granulations.
Taking into account these strict criteria to the material of coopering products, wine makers, choosing oak barrels for their alcoholic drinks, know that the finished drink is filled with exquisite aroma, that only oak barrel can give. In addition to the magnificent bouquet, a barrel of oak saturates future drink with tannins – antioxidant components, that are contained in wood and effect human health favorably.
What conditions must be observed to get quality wine that will charm even the most demanding drink connoisseurs?
- Storage of the drink must be only at stable temperature, which should be the same as at the beginning of the fermentational process.
- Protection against the penetration of sunlight into the barrel. Sunlight promotes rapid deterioration of the drink.
- Porous structure of the wood lets pass the sufficient amount of air, necessary for the fermentation of yeast and juice.
In light of this, when you plan to engage in winemaking, first of all, buy an oak barrel.
