Jim,
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


Thank you
