Mocama will install several foeders in our production area. Foeders are large wooden vessels used to age beers for extended periods of time. They allow a slow ingress of oxygen into the beer that is easily supervised with the tasting valve. The high beer to wood ratio allows the beer to mature and develop. This is in contrast to smaller barrels that can progress more rapidly, leading to undesirable acidification before the beer is fully developed. Foeders also allow for greater capacity compared to the footprint barrels take up. Because the beer is coming from one vessel, we will have a more consistent and reproducible product. They also save on time and labor compared to racking multiple barrels or pulling multiple nails when sampling.
