New Barrel Preparation - Soda Ash
Description: What do you think of this moderate barrel preparation strategy: Step 1) 0.01% rinse soda ash (3 gals) Step 2) 0.10% rinse citric acid (3 gals) Step 3) hot water rinse (3 gals)

This is a smart process, creating by an experienced barrel person. This is a barrel preparation process that works well particularly with plunky to structured barrels. American barrels such as World Cooperage or French barrels equivalent to Radous. I like the fact that the soda ash is very mild and the citric acid neutralizes the soda ash.
