Removing them is as simple as turning over your carboy or barrel, and watching them roll out! These can be used in both red and white wines, and are perfect for carboys, barrels, small tanks, and kegs. Ideal oak for the home winemaker! These Convection Toasted Medium Plus French Oak Xoakers are packed in Mylar bags, and will contribute various flavors depending on the wine.
