Barrel Cleaning and Polishing

Recommended Posts

Hi, I just realised I have been cleaning my barrel all wrong recently, using a bit of silicone oil and not turning off the hop.


For Cleaning I have heard that its best to use rubbing alcohol. Where do I get it?

Is white spirits the same sort of thing? I haven't a clue but we do have at least five bottles of it.


For Polishing I have heard its best to use a slightly abrasive 'thing' (I haven't a clue what you would call it or where to get it) to get rid of imperfections and then some sort of wax to make the barrel smooth and shiny. B)


If you could give suggestions as to where to get some of thus stuff, the less specialised shops the better would be brilliant.


Thanks for all the help, Daniel.


I have returned.
