You are correct NFPA and the IFC have nonapplicability exceptions. I did a
power point on Distilleries and during my research I found out that the IBC
does not recognize this exception. Try using table 307.1(1) of the IBC. I will
try and send you my PowerPoint tomorrow.

Subject: Whiskey in Wooden barrels
We have been asked to look at protecting a small distillery that will be
storing or aging in wooden barrels stored on multi row racking.
As whiskey is more than 20% alcohol I assume we go to flammable liquids NFPA
#30, but they have nothing for protecting product stored in wooden barrels.
Can someone point me in the right direction
