Our Bordeaux-style Barrel Steaming Tool delivers bacteria-killing sanitation upto a 1/4″ deep into wood.
Wine Barrel Steam Tool
For those in the know, steam-cleaning your Bordeaux-style wine, beer and spirit barrels is becoming a new standard in effective cleaning and sanitation. Using the Optima Steamer and our Barrel Cleaning Tool will use a fraction of the water you would use with a pressure washer, kill more bacteria in the surface of the barrel and penetrate deeper, will produce swell in minutes — not hours — and will preserve toasting flavors and character rather than flushing them away.
Our Barrel Tool comes with a heavy-duty thermometer, an independent steam shutoff valve, a custom made silicon bung with vented grooves, and a sturdy, heavy base to make sure that a tight, pressurized seal is created. Mount and let steam do the work as the bung is designed to create just enough pressure for elevated temps but not too much that there will be any popping. Not recommended for 12K all-electric units.
Information provided by Steamericas regarding the steaming of barrels is meant for reference only and should not be considered a definitive, absolute resource. Rather, the information we have regarding technique and usage of our tool are efforts to share what we have learned. Steamericas and SJE have worked with wine and beer specialists to put together recommended techniques but we are not wine specialists. The techniques we recommend and this tool have been made in response to the needs of our customers.
