American Oak Chips - Heavy Toast

American Oak Chips - Heavy Toast

Please select from the following option(s) to see pricing and availability.

Oak Chips are a fast and economical way to add oak barrel flavor to any beer.

Oak Chips are made from seasoned American and French Oak staves which are chipped down and convection-toasted to create flavors similar to what a comparably toasted barrel would impart. The available toast levels are Medium, Medium +, and Heavy.

It's important to understand that each toasting level creates different flavors in the oak; not a greater intensity of impact in your beer. Don't think of them as weak, normal & strong; they're each a different flavor profile.

Heavy Toast American Oak chips will impart strong flavors of Vanilla & Char, with a small note of Clove. These chips will not impart the coconut flavor often characteristic of lower toast American oaks.

Because of the high surface area, oak chips can extract quickly and care should be taken not to overdo it. Taste your beer frequently after the first week of contact and be ready to rack off the oak chips.

Suggested Dosage is 1-2 oz per 5 gallons.

A little hint of oak is nice in most beers, really helps dark ales.

Good chips. It's a little early to say more as they are still working.
