Product Details

AKA oak beans. Medium toast French oak cubes impart aromatic sweetness, full mouthfeel, and notes of jammy fruit, cinnamon, and allspice. Look for undertones of creme brulee, milk chocolate, and mild to moderate campfire and roast coffee character.

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.

Looking to make an oatmeal stout or some type of darker beer where I can get a hint of coffee/campfire with vanilla or even chocolate undertones. I was leaning more towards the oatmeal stout because I like the flavors but just adding a type of oak cubes... Any thought or suggestions? Maybe some has tried it and has a better idea?

Best Answer: Rebecca,

If you are looking for a campfire flavor I would suggest adding some Rauch malt to the grain bill. The light smoke character from the beech wood will give you the flavor you are looking for.
