Microbial risks in a barrel program exponentially increase as you need to clean each barrel
Oxygen control in tank through micro-oxygenation is possible with oak complements
Customization of flavors and extraction times is far more possible with complements than barrels
the impact of a barrel
A good cooperage can use only about 25 percent of a tree for barrels due to the specific dimensions required for the shape of barrel staves.
Unlike coopers, Innerstave’s milling capacity allows us to use nearly every usable part of barrel quality wood from an oak tree. By cutting around knots and using our various oak formats – from chips to blocks to staves – we have redefined the term “barrel quality” to include the entirety of our precious natural resources.
