German wine casks: on the right is a Stückfass of 1400 L

Stuck was a form occasionally found in English writing as a corruption of the German "Stück", itself an abbreviation of Stückfass (formerly written Stückfaß), referring to the volume of a wine cask of around 1000-1200 litres.[1] It was normally used in reference to German wine production.[2][3][4][5]
