Here we discuss in detail about whisky cask investment. It is a good idea to use a smaller testing cask to store and pour your fermented whisky juice. Your product will be negatively affected if you expose your aged grape juice to oxygen. Here are some tips on whisky barrel investment:
Your smaller cask will likely empty faster, reducing oxygen exposure. Your aged grape juice will taste and be affected by oxygen. It is a good idea to empty the barrel you used for aging and then fill it with your wine.

The best choice is to use an oak cask or stainless steel cask as a second barrel. An electrical pump can transfer larger volumes. Smaller volumes can be siphoned from the larger cask or even poured into it. Cleaning and curing will take less than one day.
If your cask is leaking, you need to fix it. You will need to pour very hot water into your cask. Fill the cask at least halfway and let the steam and water expand the wood to fill in any cracks. Rotate or roll your cask to get the water out. This should be done at least three times. Next, pour your aged whisky back into your cask. You can decide whether to bottle or barrel your whisky based on how you plan to use it.
