Just filled my other half barrel and its 1cm taller on the inside
4 x 25 Litres,

This is soundinding more like a fairy story:

"Once upon a time there was a cask of beer, and the brewer of said cask was about to take it to market when he went for a P*ss behind the bushes.

Just as he was about to water a dandelion:

Poof:  Up popped the Dandelion Fairy (@beertourist: See the wikki for the ref!).

"Please spare my little sisters!" said the Fairy!

"Whats in it for me said the brewer"??

Said the Fairy: "An ever expanding cask of beer - the more you measure it or the more you fill it the bigger it gets!"

"F**kit said the brewer Give me two"

Or in Caras case, give me three.

Are there spares?
We could fill a few down in Cork...

Ciderhead

All being filled, there will be in 18 months time though.

I might have a Jameson one from across the road by then!
Great smell of mash in Midleton.

Ciderhead just dropped off the Galway barrel, trying to resist having a sneaky drop from it!
Smells delish!

On behalf of Galway Homebrewers club I'd like to say a big thank you to Ciderhead, Cara, Will_D and anyone else involved in this group buy!

Well done lads
