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.

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 (Posted on 11/13/13)

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. (Posted on 7/19/13)

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! (Posted on 7/11/13)
