Oak Cubes - American Medium Plus
Oak cubes are our preferred method to add oak flavor. ¬†Compared to other oak alternatives, they provide the best control and flexibility to add flavor and tannins to your beer, wine or spirit. ¬†The thickness of the cubes and the slow toasting process created the same traditional flavors found in the production of fire toasted barrels. ¬†The cubes slow extraction creates more complex barrel flavors.
Cubes can be added directly to carboys or small barrels. ¬†Full extraction is achieved after 6-8 weeks of aging.
Use 1/2 oz. to 2 oz per 5 gallons.
Remember the golden rule of oak: ¬†You can always add more oak, but you can never take the oak out. ¬†So be conservative with your oak additions. ¬†Taste your beverage after 6 weeks, and then add more oak if you have not achieved your desired flavor level.
