4/10/2005 – Is Citric Acid the one used for cleaning barrels, etc.?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes. See instructions below for a new barrel, or reconditioning a used barrel. If the (used) barrel is quite dirty, you may also have to use some soda ash to remove deposits.To prepare a new barrel:Tightening your new barrelIt is very important to make sure your barrel is tight (i.e. has no leaks). Fill the barrel with cool water and allow it to soak until the wood swells tight. Change the water every three days to prevent contamination of the barrel. When water no longer seeps out between the staves, or at either end, the barrel is completely tight. This can take two weeks or more.Conditioning your barrelCondition your barrel after you are sure it?s tight. Soak the barrel in very hot water for about a week, changing the water every two days. Each time you change the water, you should check to see how much of the raw oak flavor has been extracted: taste the water and look at its color (more yellow = more oak). When there is little oak flavor and the color is very pale, the barrel is ready for soaking with an acidic sanitizing solution.Sanitizing your barrelUse this procedure to sanitize your barrel before filling it with wine.Fill barrel half-way with cold water.Add 2.5 grams of sodium metabisulphite for every litre of the barrel?s total volume (0.4 oz./Imp. gal.).Add 1.25 grams of citric acid for every litre of the barrel?s total volume (0.2 oz./Imp. gal).Bung the barrel. Roll it to mix in the metabisulphite and citric acid.Remove bung and finish filling barrel with cold water. Replace bung and let full barrel stand 48 hours.Drain barrel. Rinse several times with cold water.
