Description

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 toasted to create flavors similar to what you'd get from a barrel.

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.

These staves for these Medium Toast French Oak chips are sourced from a cooper (barrel maker) in Napa, CA. They deliver clove and spice flavors of medium intensity, along with strong flavors of Butterscotch & perceived sweetness.

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.

I have bought and used these for different recipes. I prefer my whiskey in oak. I guess I haven't made a real connection with oak in ale yet. That being said their wasn't a bunch of fines in this. It was perfect for the recipes I was using.
