Product Details

AKA oak beans. Medium toast American oak cubes bring aromatic sweetness and a campfire/roasted coffee attribute, light fruit and a nice mouthfeel.

Crafted from air-dried oak staves and fire-toasted by expert coopers in California, oak cubes allow winemakers to impart terrific oak flavor and aroma to wines aged in glass carboys, plastic buckets, or steel tanks. Use a single variety or create your own custom blend of different toasts and woods.

Suggested dose is 2.5 - 3 oz per five gallons; can be added during fermentation or aging. Leave wine in contact with the cubes for a minimum of two to three months.

oak cubes
I love these oak cubes. I like bourbon so i like to soak them in single barrel Evan Williams and put them in the secondary fermenter of any darker beer. They are great

Worked great!
I wasn't sure about the commercial oak cube purchase at first, but after making an oak "tea" I was definitely impressed with the nice Carmel color and pleasant flavor. Added a very nice layer into the brew.

They work!
I made a strong "pirate ale" as featured on HBT and used these soaked in rum with EXCELLENT results. I never even considered adding random objects such as wood in my beer, but I was impressed by the character they gave my pirate ale. Yaaarr!

Good stuff
I purchased these to soak in good rum, and then add to NB's Scotch Ale. They have a great aroma and flavor, and 2 oz seems to be perfect for a 5 gallon batch.

used in a vanilla bourbon porter and tastes great. After 11 days there is a nice balance of bourbon, vanilla and a touch of oak

Good! These have a more "seasoned" aroma than the oak chips I have purchased in the past.

What are the dimensions of these cubes? Will I be able to get them in/out of a glass carboy?
A shopper on Nov 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I purchased and used these cubes in my 2015 wines. The cubes are roughly 1/2"x1/4"x1/4". They fit easily into a 3 gallon and 5 gallon glass carboy. When you rack your wine they stay in the carboy so you'll wash them out, clean them with 1 step, rinse and put them back in the carboy. I was really happy with the results I achieved using these cubes. I recommend they over wood chips. These are much easier to use.
