Great quick flavor infusion
Used 2 bags in a 5 gal batch of English Brown Ale. Came out great. Will try again on my fall batch of stout.

Minimal Bourbon Flavor
I used the whole 2oz package in a Milk Stout Kit and soaked the chunks in Bourbon for a week before adding to the secondary fermenter . The Bourbon flavor was very subtle, nice but too light for my taste. I will try them again but maybe kick up the amount of chunks and increase the time in the fermenter.

Good bourbon aroma
Used these bourbon barrel chunks recently in a split batch of porter. Only two weeks on the chunks was enough for me to medal in wood aged beer at a local comp! The bourbon aroma was so strong I could smell it before even opening the plastic bag they are packaged in. Would definitely recommend!

Smell Great!
These things smell great!

They are a bit larger than wine oak cubes, but they should still fit through the neck of a carboy.

I use these for sour beer, so they are perfect for harboring brett and bacteria.

Right amount of flavor
Have used many times over the years, always adds just the right amount of flavor to my brews.

Best in Strong beers
Used these in a bourbon porter, and they gave a nice touch of vanilla to the finished beer.

Subtle Oak and Bourbon Flavor
Aged 5 gallons of baltic porter on these for just about a month. Tasted along the way and pulled them once the oak and bourbon flavoring were noticeable but not overwhelming. A little one dimensional in flavor compared to other barrel aged beers, but a good alternative.

Pretty good
There is some bourbon flavor but it is not too strong. To boost the bourbon flavor, I soaked these in some bourbon for 3 weeks before I added them and the bourbon to the secondary for 6 weeks. I used 4 oz for a 10 gallon batch of Imperial Stout and it gave it a nice, subtle oak flavor.

Did the trick
I soaked these in bourbon and then put them into a carboy with the oak infusion tube. I left them for a couple weeks and the flavor got to where I wanted it.

Nice addition to plain oaking - get some bourbon
I've used these only once, but really liked the results. Take care to check the oak in your beer often. It only took two weeks for me to get the oak level I wanted with these. Final beer has a clear, but not dominant, bourbon flavor to it.
