Breathe new life into old barrels! There’s no need to spend big money on new barrels when you can use an inexpensive and readily available neutral barrel, along with this Oak Infusion Tube to get the same results.

 
The Oak Cube Infusion Tube is simple to use and versatile. With it, you have complete control over the specific blend and intensity of oak flavor you want to add to your beer. You simply load the tube with oak cubes and lower it into the barrel. Leave it to steep until you are satisfied with the level of oak infusion. 
 
The Infusion Tube has a silicone bung at the top and bottom of the tube. This way you can completely submerge it into your barrel & secure it, to ensure you keep an airtight seal. It also allows for easy emptying after you are done with the cubes. 
 
Loading Instructions: Remove the bottom silicone bung; fill the Infusion Tube with one bag of Cubes; replace the bottom bung firmly; insert the loaded tube into the carboy and secure the top bung tightly. 
 
The tube accommodates 8 oz of Oak Cubes at a time. 24" L x 1 3/4"D with a 5" stem. 
 
About the Oak Cubes: Each new 8 oz load of Stavin Oak Cubes (the brand that we sell) has an effective extraction time of two-three months, providing 33 percent of new barrel extraction. This means you can adjust your use of these cubes to achieve the level of oak flavor you desire. All Stavin cubes are fire toasted in the traditional method, a crucial stage in the processing of these cubes. These really are the highest quality oak cubes on the market. We have tested other, less expensive, cubes and they are not even comparable. 
Prebook Item: Please note this item is not currently in stock, but is available for Pre-Order. We do require payment in full in order to reserve stock.

Stavin is a reputable brand and this is a much cheaper route than a new barrel. Plus, my Pinot only needs 30-60% new oak.

Has anybody had problems fitting the tube through the bung hole? It is a little too large in diameter.
Mark Diehl on Jun 17, 2022
BEST ANSWER: I bought some for future use. When I saw your questions I discovered that mine also didn’t fit. My husband used his hole saw bit to increase the inside diameter a little bit and that solved the issue. The bung then went it easy. Of course it would be nice if they had been just a bit smaller, to make them more universal fit.

Buyer Beware!
Does NOT fit easily into the bung hole!! To use as is I would have had to wiggle and "force" it down in. My concern with that was, how hard would it be to get back out and what damage would be done! Fortunately, I built a "bung hole reamer" (photo) a few years ago. I reamed out about 1mm of the opening and, viola! - slides right in, and the tube bung and my bungs still work perfectly. Happy now! But!, I really think this shortcoming should be fixed!!

Doesn't fit
I tried the Oak infusion tubes on 4 different manufacturers brands of 60 g barrels and the tube is too large to fit into the bung hole without enlarging the bung hole. Otherwise, good quality

We just put it in a 80 gal flex tank.
