Stainless Steel Barrel Uses
Wineries are our number 1 customers!!! Our Stainless steel barrels are an affordable option for winemakers and wineries. Unlike oak barrels, stainless steel wine barrels can be used over and over again with a low, one time cost. Stainless steel barrels are also easily portable and sanitary. These are easy to clean and sterilize making them a popular choice for winemakers. Winemakers who desire that “oak” flavor simply add oak chips or chunks of oak to the steel wine barrels. However, many wineries use stainless steel containers to achieve a lighter, fruitier flavored wine that is more delicate in nature.
Many beer makers want stainless steel containers because of their longevity and easy cleaning. Like wineries that are aiming for a certain flavor, it is important for the barrel not to modify the final product. Stainless steel is more durable than wooden barrels, and can be used over and over. They also hold carbonation pressures longer and thus keep the beer fresher.
