Description

Convection toasted Oak Cubes made in the US from American Oak.

These Oak Cubes impart similar flavors as the equivalent oak type and toast level chip, but extract more slowly giving you more control over the final impact in your beer.

These cubes are produced from staves of American oak that have been air-seasoned for 18-24 months, then toasted to a Medium Toast. They will add a sweet, butterscotch note with a hint of bourbon char to your beer.

Suggested dosage is 2-4 oz per 5 gallons of beer.

how much oak cubes do you put in a 5 gallon beer batch?
TODD EDWARDS on Sep 18, 2021
BEST ANSWER: It really depends how much flavor you're looking for and how long you are willing to wait. The oak cubes usually fully extract in about 3 months, but you can rack off of the oak at any time that you feel the flavor is correct. I recommend 0.5 - 1oz of cubes for a light beer or softer oak character and 2oz for a strong imperial stout or barley wine. You can also steep your cubes in wine or liquor for a few days before adding to your beer if you want extra flavor.

More Nuanced than the French Oak Cubes
These are three or four times Larger than the French oak cubes and the aroma is more delicate and nuanced. I add both to my wines because of those differences. I like these some much I plan to do a fermentation next year with just the American cubes.

Easy Oak
Great way to add oak flavor either via the secondary or in the keg. I have soaked them in bourbon to enhance the barrel aged flavor.
