Foeder Smith Unboxing

Made out of American white oak, The Foeder Smith .5BBL Foeder is the perfect size barrel for homebrewers. This foeder comes with everything you need to make it work right out of the box.


The Foeder Smith .5BBL Foeder uses the same high quality parts and fittings as our homebrew system. The staves are air-dried for at least 2 years and it is recommended to rehydrate the foeder as soon as it's received. Although steam is the preferred method of rehydration, you can also use warm water. To rehydrate, simply fill up the foeder with warm water for 24-48 hours. This causes the wood to re-expand and create a leak-free oak foeder that is ready to drain and fill up with beer.

Attention

The oak foeder is not designed to hold pressure, please keep it vented at all times. For the 0.5BBL, Foeder Smith recommends using an airlock plug into the top port to keep the foeder vented. Please do not seal the foeder when it's filled with beer even when the fermentation is over, any pressure may cause staves cracks and leaks.
