my guess is your using "barrel" to use identify/fill it but your using "water-barrel" when you try to drink it have you tried just using plain "barrel"

Water containers pick up a keyword from whatever liquid they hold. It's just "barrel" when empty, but it's "water barrel" when it contains water. Filling with milk would probably yield "milk barrel".

I found that the keyword for the barrel is water-barrel and then when you create water it becomes water-barrel-water and then when you drink it all it becomes water-barrel again.

So what Yasik saw seems like some kinda bug whereby the first water keyword is getting hacked off somehow. Either that or someone added water to the barrel's key names already?

Is a mystery.
Talk to the clown.
