Charset Storage Barrels Mod 1.12.2 is a Charset module which adds barrels. The Barrel is an block added by Charset, based off the Barrel added by Factorization. It does not appear in JEI, but it exists nevertheless. Each barrel is capable of storing 64 stacks of items. Items can be extracted from their bottom side and inserted from their top side, as well as by right-clicking or left-clicking the front face. Unloading an item-based inventory, such as a Backpack or a Canvas Bag, is also supported.

Charset Storage Barrels Mod


  • The Barrel is used to store a large quantity of one item. It can store 64 stacks of a single item; the total amount depends on the item’s maximum stack size, but it would be 4096 items for the normal stack size of 64. The front of the block shows the item it is holding, along with the amount of said item.
  • Right-clicking the Barrel with an item or stack of items will put the item (or stack) into the Barrel. Right-clicking it with an empty hand or a different item will open a pop-up showing the name of the item and the number of it in the Barrel. Left-clicking the Barrel will remove a stack, or the maximum amount of items in the Barrel minus one. Shift left-clicking will only remove one item.
  • The Barrel has Redstone Comparator support. When measuring it, the Redstone Comparator will emit a signal proportional to how full the Barrel is. For example, a full barrel will yield a full 15 signal strength from the Redstone Comparator, and an empty barrel will yield no signal.
  • Charset Storage Barrels benefits heavily from a mod providing a rotation tool, such as a Wrench.


The Barrel can be upgraded with the following upgrades:

  • Hopping – allows the Barrel to act as a Hopper.
  • Sticky – ensures that the Barrel will always keep at least one of a given item unless manually removed by a player. This is functionally equivalent to “locking” the barrel to only accept a specific type of item.

In addition, the following upgrades are present, but uncraftable or not enabled by default:

  • Silky – not enabled by default as it is superseded by the block carrying tweak in Charset Tweaks. Barrels with this upgrade retain their contents if mined with a Silk Touch pickaxe.
  • Infinite – not craftable and specific to Creative Barrels; make the barrel store an infinite amount of the item placed inside it.
