Barrel wax will help you seal up small leaks on oak barrels. It is easily applied to the outside of the barrel. It can help leaks around the edge of the barrel head, pin holes and leaks between barrel staves. If you have a larger barrel or a barrel with more leaks you may want to get more than one barrel wax. If you purchased your barrel from Red Head and need wax to seal a leak do not purchase it. Email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know your original order number for the barrel and we will mail you some free barrel wax.
Make sure you have fully cured the barrel before trying to use the barrel wax on your leakage. Your barrel normally will soak in the liquid which will cause the wood to swell against the hoops then it seals itselft most of the time. After you have fully cured the barrel and you still have some stubborn leaks then give your barrel wax a try. Barrel wax is very easy to use. First dry the barrel as best you can with a dry cloth. Then put the leaking side of the barrel on top so there is not active dripping while you apply the wax. Get a dab on your finger and press the wax in to the barrel area that was leaking. Wipe away the excess wax and try to cover any surrounding areas. No need to stack in on thick or anything. You should be able to wipe off the excess and the wax you pressed in to the wood grain should be enough to seal it up.
