Acids, bases, and salts have one common property, they are highly water soluble. What water leaves behind won't corrode your barrel.

Simply neutralizing an acid or a base doesn't mean you are left with something harmless. For example, hydrochloric acid (muriatic acid) and sodium hydroxide (lye) will neutralize each other forming sodium chloride (table salt), you really don't want that left in your barrel.
