We make all our kegs from seasoned American White Oak – from used red wine barrels.
Yes, all the kegs come with simple, easy to follow instructions and a warranty.
All our kegs come complete with tap, stand and bung.
Our kegs have a light coat of lacquer to prevent liquid, grease and dust from staining the wood. The keg still ‘breathes’, which is part of the maturation process.
No, they have been sealed with a clear coat and will not need polishing. For cleaning purposes, simply dust the keg. If you spill some liquid while filling the keg, use a slightly damp cloth to clean it up.
No, it is made from American Oak, from ex red wine barrels : the jarrah colour is simply a stain. The same applies to the ‘Walnut’ and ‘Teak’ kegs.
No, they are only available in ‘natural’.
No, they are only available with the Black hoops.
No, they are only available with either Brass or Steel hoops.
You only need to use a cheap bulk Port/fortified, as the oak will carry out the maturation process.
We suggest that you start drinking from your keg within a month of putting the port in. Slowly ‘tipple-away’ until the keg is half full and then fill it up again.
No, they are not suitable for that purpose.
No, but you can request that we supply your keg without the Tubbies logo on the front, so that you can affix your own. Many shoe repair/key cutting outlets or sporting trophy shops can do this for you.
Generally, from the time of ordering, we dispatch the goods within the next 2-3 working days, and then it is roughly 4-5 working days, Australia-wide.
This depends upon the keg size and the delivery postcode. The freight cost is calculated and added to your order & shown during the on-line ordering process. Alternately you can ring us before ordering to find out the freight cost.
Yes, but you will need to phone us to arrange that. Also bear in mind that it is expensive -approximately 3 times more than the regular rate. If you require the keg urgently as a gift, we suggest you print a picture of the keg and pop it in a greeting card with the words “ Specially for you – arriving soon!”
Store in a cool spot- preferably in it’s box. Fill it within 3 months.
Your keg should always be maintained at least half full to prevent drying of the timber staves, which will lead to shrinkage and could cause the keg to leak.
No, the water will become stagnant and contaminate the wood.
