Lots of techniques here...feeling a bit light-head now...I'll have to try one of these, if I can remember.

It might be a good idea to make a seperate forum for building techniques. It would be a good resource for novice MOCers such as myself (and for the experts who want to learn a few new techniques).

Also, just on a side note (to soothe the OCD in me), not all of these are "barrels." I believe the smaller ones are firkens (used for storing wine); then there also casks (for ale); and kegs (for beer).


Thanks for putting up with that.

In case anyone's interested...

A "brewer's barrel" contains 36 gallons of beer - 288 UK Pints (20 fl oz)
A "keg" holds 11 gallons - 88 pints
A "firkin" holds 9 gallons - 72 pints

There is also a container size of 22 gallons. I have no idea what the proper name for this might be. 20 years of working in pubs and for a major brewer and I have never heard this called anything but a "22"!

"Cask ale" is usually delivered to pubs in firkins. The term "cask" is not a unit of measure in beer production or distribution any more, rather it's a designation of beer belonging to a particular category of ale which continues to develop in flavour and strength after it is despatched from the brewery; "cask conditioning".

The UK Beer Market is measured in Brewer's Barrels, and in the last year was a total of 29m barrels, or 8.3 BILLION pints. :shock:
Increasingly irritated by the way real-world work impinges on building time...
