As no glue or nails are used when making our barrels, barrels may leak from the head or stave seams or even through the wood. This can happen with any barrel and is a normal part of the barrel aging process. To stop leaks, apply a small amount of Barrel Wax to the leaking area.
With your finger, apply a small amount of wax on the barrel where the hole or leak is occurring. Push the wax into the hole until the leak stops.
