Bunghole…


Many who know me may have been afraid to open this post. But did you know a bunghole is a real (an not gross) thing?

“A bunghole or bungehole is a hole bored in a liquid-tight barrel to remove contents. The hole is capped with a large cork-like object called a bung…Bungholes were first used on wooden barrels, and were typically bored by the purchaser of the barrel using abrace and bit. Bungholes can be bored in either head (end) of a barrel or in one of the staves (side). With the bung removed, a tapered faucet can be attached to aid with dispensing.” ~Wikipedia: Bunghole

In this picture (at D’Railed), the cask has already been bunged, ready to pour Chloe’s mead.

    Aye Chloe. I worked as a Piggy Pirate back in October and researched bungholes from a dare that daddy made me – snorts. XOXO – Bacon

    Wow, I sort of expected Chloe to be facing the other way for the photo.
